Wednesday is Green Tea, White Tea, Rooibos, Oolong and Tisane (Herbal) Review Day!
I mentioned Fang Gourmet Tea back at the beginning of June. They were throwing a tea tasting event up in New York. They graciously provided me with a sample of this Medium LiSan Oolong from Taiwan.

This Medium LiSan Oolong from Fang Gourmet Tea is a “green” oolong. This basically means it’s closer to a green tea than a black tea.
It’s leaves are dark green and some have stems. They’re also clumps or balled & rolled. The liquor (color) brews up a very nice yellow gold.
The aroma presents itself very nicely. Smooth & creamy with notes of honey and hints of stone fruits like peaches or nectarines in the texture.
This oolong is a bit astringent and puckery with a lasting tail.
I would recommend this tea for any fan of oolongs or to those who like their teas with milk and/or honey or sugar.
