Tea Review: Organic Oolong Tea (Yunomi/Takeo Tea Farm)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 15

Organic Oolong Tea
Yunomi/Takeo Tea Farm
Type:  Oolong
Origin:  Japan, Mie Prefecture, Tsu City
Product Description:  The Takeo family has developed their own semi-fermentation method to bring out the best of oolong and black tea flavors in their JAS Certified Organic Oolong Tea.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a woody aroma with a hint of coriander-like spice.

The orange-red infusion has a warm apricot aroma with notes of pine wood and a hint of brown sugar.  The taste has notes of malt and dried wood.

This heavily oxidized oolong has much of the character and body of a black tea and the first infusion provides the best results.
