Tea Review: Thé Wulong Supérieur (Trianon Tea)

Thé Wulong Supérieur
Trianon Tea
Type:  Oolong
Origin:  Not provided.
Product Description:  Not provided.

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

The dry leaves have a sweet aroma of grass, oats, and carnations.

The pale green infusion has a lightly toasty green aroma with a hint of flowers.  The taste is light toasty green with no astringency.

This was a sample that did not come with any background information.  It was surprisingly light in flavor and aroma and reminded me of a mellow Dragonwell.  The floral notes that were faint in the first two steepings really began to stand out by the third steeping.  I would expect to get at least two to three more good cups with increasing aroma and flavor.

Trianon Tea is no longer in business.
