From Bruu Tea

An absolute Oolong classic from the Chinese school. Unlike many white or green Chinese teas, whose production peak takes place in spring, the Ti Kuan Yin Oolong qualities tend to be produced in the autumn. These teas captivate the senses with their ripeness and highly aromatic full body. Our Ti Kuan Yin comes from the Fujian province.

Had a mug of this earlier in the afternoon. The fact my teeth were sore again was certainly not an aid in my enjoyment of the tea, but even still I found that this was pretty astringent. Not a bad taste, but just not a “wow” cup in this circumstance.

I´ve been away for more than a month and had two Bruu monthly tea club boxes waiting for me when I returned. So, plenty of new teas to try.
This half-fermented oolong shows very green, grassy aroma´s but once steeped all the grass seems to be gone. A balanced tea, which can be appreciated by black tea lovers as well.

From Bruu´s website :
An absolute Oolong classic from the Chinese school. Unlike many white or green Chinese teas, whose production peak takes place in spring, the Ti Kuan Yin Oolong qualities tend to be produced in the autumn. These teas captivate the senses with their ripeness and highly aromatic full body. Ti Kuan Yin (also spelled Tieguanyin) is a legendary oolong tea from Jiangxi, Fujian province in China. It is one of China’s most beloved oolongs and is extremely time-consuming to produce. Jiangxi, located on the Eastern side of China, is surrounded by mountains on three sides and sits comfortably in a subtropical climate, making it an excellent place for growing tea.
How our drink hits the senses : Notes of toasted walnut and tender collard greens. Intriguing lingering floral aroma, lightly orchid and gentle astringency.
The taste journey : Deliciously floral and creamy with subtle hints of peach, it is also rumoured to be great for the waistline! The taste builds with each Mouthful. No fuss, no frills classic Oolong.
