Tea Review: Pure Oolong Tea (Zealong/TeaGschwendner)

Pure Oolong
Type: Oolong
Origin: New Zealand
Product Description:
Zealong’s organic Pure oolong tea is sweet with fresh-tasting leaves that are un-roasted, bringing out the pure, natural flavour of the tea.

Zealong teas are hand-picked by only the top three leaves, are certified organic, and grown in the Waikato region in the North Island of New Zealand. Known for its unique climate and growing conditions, these teas are truly special and has won many international awards.
Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3-5 minutes

The dry leaves have a sweet, mineral-green aroma with notes of nuts, oats, and a hint of smoke.

The golden liquor has a rich, buttery, and floral aroma.  The taste is sweet, buttery, and smooth with a long sweet and buttery finish.

This oolong was surprisingly light following a 3 minute steep and at it's peak after steeping for 5 minutes.  The flavor was rather rich, reminiscent of milk oolong, and something in the aroma of the second infusion reminded me of buttered croissants (hello, sudden craving!).  The third infusion was mellow and still quite enjoyable.

This tea was purchased by me.
