This tea and oolongs in particular have grown on me. It is a tasty but floral affair with the background notes of wood mushrooms often found in oolongs. I believe it to be unroasted but am not sure. The woman at Ten Ren Tea who sold it to me spoke little English so it was hard to ask questions. Ten Ren in Manhatten’s Chinatown is an impressive store with a couple of hundred teas and lots of teawares. It is better than their store in Flushing. This is one of their lower grades of Oolongs, They had one Oolong for about $500 per pound. If you are in Chinatown it is a store to visit.
I brewed this western style in an 16 oz teapot with 190 degree water and 3 tsp leaf for two minutes.
