Tea Review: Shangri-La Oolong (Nepal Tea LLC)

Shangri-La Oolong
Nepal Tea LLC
Type: Oolong
Origin: Nepal, Kanchanjangha Tea Estate
Product Description: Shangri-La Oolong tea (generally pronounced “wu-long”) is the mid-point blend between black tea and green tea in terms of oxidation. It is semi-oxidized and hence produces the characteristics of both green and black tea.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of nut shells and muscat grapes.

The infusion is red-orange in color with a peppery, floral and honey aroma.  The taste is floral with a velvety finish.

This oolong is full-bodied throughout multiple infusions with only a minor loss in flavor by the third infusion.
