Tea Review: Annapurna Amber Oolong Tea (Nepali Tea Traders)

Annapurna Amber Oolong Tea
Nepali Tea Traders
Type: Oolong
Origin: Nepal
Product Description:
A stunning Himalayan massif, Annapurna is Sanskrit for “Goddess of the Harvests.” One leaf and a bud, plus a mature leaf are plucked. The tea is oxidized slowly, in cold air, then double fired. An exceptional Darjeeling-style oolong, Annapurna Oolong is infused with apricot and muscat grape flavors. Its liquor is full-bodied, revealing a beautiful red-amber hue distinctive to our teas. Subtle notes of malt and caramel linger in the finish.
Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a spicy aroma with hints of citrus, dark molasses, brown bread, and seared wood.

The bright red infusion has a sweet aroma with notes of dark bread, brown sugar, honey, and baked fruit.  The taste is rich and dark with notes of baked fruit, and a hint of cinnamon with a long fruity finish.

While the first infusion held the most complexity, the second and third infusions were still enjoyable.  The finish was especially delightful.

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