Started off as a fairly nice cup of tea, but ended up a little bland for my taste. It didn't really feel distinctive to me. To be fair, though, pure oolongs aren't my favorite of the pure teas. The tea appeared to diffuse slowly and to, therefore, brew up weak for my taste. It didn't have any bad flavors, per se, but this one isn't really my cup.

This is a green wulong tea from Taiwan, in tea bag form from Ten Ren. This is a complex tea, but its vegetal and floral characteristics stand out the most to me. There is also some slight sweetness, and the overall character is quite rich and smooth. I have some loose leaf King of Tieguanyin, another green wulong, that is actually quite similar to this tea. This sort of green wulong has a lot to offer.

Overall, this is an excellent tea from a tea bag. It's quite nice that Ten Ren has offerings like this in an affordable tea bag. Unfortunately, such quality Chinese tea bag teas are difficult find, outside of ordering them directly from the company.

Without a doubt, this is the best tea in a basic teabag that I've ever tried. (Tradition's whole-leaf oolong in a sachet strikes me as better, but I think that's in a different category of teas.)

The aroma is fresh, complex, and difficult to describe. The cup is exceedingly rich and also very smooth, with a hint of pleasant bitterness. This tea is also easy to enjoy; I meet few people who don't enjoy it. While some of the finer oolongs had to grow on me, I liked this tea from the first sip.

If using to brew a single cup, you can easily make 2 infusions of 2-3 minutes, and the third is remarkably flavorful. Make sure to not use boiling water, as recommended! If the water is too hot, some unpleasant tones come out in the aroma.

Exceedingly reasonable price for such an outstanding tea!
