Tea Review: EU Shi Hua Xiang Oolong (Chao Ji Yun Xiang Tea Co., Ltd)

EU Shi Hua Xiang Oolong
Chao Ji Yun Xiang Tea Co., Ltd
Type: Oolong
Origin: China, Guangdong Province, Chaozhou
Product Description:  Not provided.

Temperature: 195° F/208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have floral and apricot notes, as well as a hint of seasoned wood.

The golden infusion is clear with a faint pink blush. The aroma has notes of butter and apricot with faint floral notes. The flavor has a rice-like savoriness with a long apricot-like finish.

Though the complexities in flavor and aroma are well-developed when steeped at 195° F, this oolong really shines when prepared at 208° F. With either method, the flavorful finish goes on and on.

At the time that I received this dancong oolong sample, it was only available wholesale.  Hopefully, their teas will soon be available for retail sales.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
