Tea Review: Equator Sun (Arum Tea)

Equator Sun
Arum Tea
Type: Oolong
Origin: Indonesia
Product Description: Very Smooth. Light golden hue with a fruity and floral fragrance. As the tea develops, the initial earthy flavors transforms into a lingering finish of herbs and flowers.

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

The dry leaf aroma is floral with pine wood notes.

The infusion is pale green-yellow with a light, sweet, floral, and fruity aroma and a lightly fruity and savory green taste.

While the first infusion is pleasantly light and reminds me of a good white tea, the leaves really opened up in the second and third infusions and developed a pronounced buttery floral aroma and floral taste.   I would expect several more flavorful and aromatic infusions from this oolong.
