The standard tea bags are filled with chopped up tea. The heavily-roasted aroma is quite strong.

Oddly, the brewed tea isn't as aromatic as the dry tea bags. It's nice, but there's no complexity. It smells like tea that has already been steeped once.

The tea definitely tastes roasted. It's smooth and easy to drink, but not very complex. It tastes like (and maybe is) the oolong that inexpensive Chinese restaurants serve. As the tea cools, the flavor becomes a bit more harsh. There's bitterness that isn't particularly strong, but isn't pleasant, either. Definitely finish this while it's hot.

The Asian grocery store where I bought this sells boxes of 25 tea bags for $.99 or 100 for $3.49. It's cheap and tastes like it. If you're at a store that stocks this, it almost certainly has better tea as well.

Great tea for the bagged variety style,I usually drink high quality loose leaf at $15-25 per ounce, but Wei-Chuan is my next choice for an excellent full bodied smooth as silk tea. Also the price cannot be beat!! Thank you and keep up the great quality. Larry Michaels of the great lakes region, Ohio.

Overall, slightly flat...typical for a relatively generic oolong from a big box of teabags. Full-bodied...aroma is toasty and roasty, has some depth but also is a little bit reminiscent of cardboard. Some bitterness.

I've had a lot better oolongs from teabags. But this stuff is still better than a lot of the stuff on the shelf in most supermarkets.
