Found at Zaytuna’s (NY) $1.99 + tax … nice price for a “new” product, placed next to ItoEn and Adagio bottled teas.

As their green tea did not satisfy me
i was naturally & organically a little suspicious,
but here it is:

Smell: off to a good start: some sort of dark oolong !

Taste: there is a sufficient amount of astringency/tannin (not bitterness) on the tongue but its not overpowering.  Follows a dark oolong flavor, maybe a ‘generic’ wuyi or TGY?…may be something else, i cant type it. The tannin then leaves a dry sensation on the tongue and throat. Can’t feel any of the vit C/ascorbic in the flavor (it might be mixed/covered by the tannin), but there are no other weird flavors or chemical tastes. … it does taste like a ‘pure oolong tea’, on my tongue. As for the quality of the tea leaf used i cant say because i dont consume as much dark oolong as other tea types.

Overall: this is very nice as i see it and I’d have no problem buying this again. …dont remember the other bottled oolongs i have on my RTD tea List, but i’ll put it on top for now.
