Tea Review: Flowery Oolong (Chariteas)

Flowery Oolong
Chariteas
Type: Oolong
Origin: Vietnam
Product Description: A Vietnamese green oolong bursting with fragrance & floral notes.

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

The dry leaves have a flowery and spring green aroma with a hint of honey.

The bright yellow-green infusion has a floral, buttery, and nutty aroma.  The taste is sweet and lightly savory with floral and sunflower seed notes and a sweet flowery finish.

Following the first infusion and after the leaves began to open up, the floral notes moved to the front and the liquor color became bright yellow.  While boldly floral teas are often at least moderately astringent, the astringency of this oolong remained pleasantly low.
