Organic Wuyi oolong (Qilan).Rishi TeaNovember 4, 2007 at 12:05 am | Posted in Dark oolong, Oolong Tea, Tea Reviews | 2 Comments
had this at whole foods market, as always didnt take pic of tea leaf, so heres some area pics instead of Columbus Circle’s Time Warner Center,
cup 12oz $1.6
it was called “organic” …pass on that, and “wuyi oolong” …nice and…generic name,
for which reason i almost didnt buy- due to my previous experience with a wuyi (shui xian) oolong,
but it turned out alot different…
a deep smooth/silky/satin feeling, with a flavor i cant describe, pretty long lasting silky aftertaste
the astringency (not much) had notes of chocolate,
there was some minor roasted flavor,
didnt taste any green feels.
the leaf was about 1 cm cuts, mostly dark green mixed with brown
very good i liked it alot.
got home and internet-vestigated
i think its from rishi tea because ipot (the other sold in WF) doesnt have wuyi oolongs
Rishi says this “organic wuyi oolong” is the Qi Lan WuYi Oolong
online rishi doesnt sell too expensive 4$/oz, 22/.5LB
…cant find anyone else selling this except rishi … !!!
