I prepared this Gong Fu Style in my Yixing teapot that I use everytime. While Songboling’s are cheaper oolongs in the tea hierarchy, what’s nice about Songboling’s are that they have the earthy oolong taste for a rather inexpensive price.
The Songboling’s from IDEAS tea are no exception and tastes exactly what I had while I was living in Taiwan. A problem with cheaper oolong teas is the bitter aftertaste but I didn’t experience that with this Songboling. What’s nice is that IDEAS tea shipped fast for a Taiwanese tea merchant, it’s probably because they’re headquartered in Vancouver, thank goodness.
I’m looking forward to ordering other oolong teas from IDEAS tea in the future. It’s just a shame their selection is so limited.
