My cheapest (at NZ$38/250g) wulong.
I don’t know anything about it, other than the fact that it’s from Taiwan. The only English on the container is “High Mountain Tea”, and the only Chinese I could work out translates to the same thing.
The first time I tried this tea, I was disappointed.
It tasted like spinach.
After a bit of experimenting though, I discovered that as far as wulong goes, it’s very green. Thus, the reason it tasted like spinach that first time is because I had cooked it.
This tea wants the water temperature to be in the 82-85˚C range. Any higher and it becomes quite unpleasant.
Brewed correctly, though, it’s actually quite nice. Nothing spectacular, but readily drinkable.
