Tea Review: Taiwan Treasure

Taiwan Treasure
Gift/Mystery Tea
Type:  Oolong
Origin:  Taiwan
Product Description:  Not available.

Temperature: 185° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf aroma is floral, peppery and spicy with notes of fragrant wood.

The golden infusion has a floral aroma with notes of honey and lightly roasted greens.  The taste is sweet and savory, lightly floral, with a sweetness that reminds me of sugar snap peas.  

Three steepings produced consistently aromatic and flavorful tea with no astringency.  Steeping at slightly higher temperatures (195° F) produced similarly nuanced results.
