Pouchong is a lightly-oxidized Taiwanese oolong, celebrated for its beguiling aroma. As relayed by a tea master, "if there's no fragrance, it's not worth the effort!" As such, our Masters-grade Pouchong has a deep and inviting floral nose. The liquor is a pale golden-green color with melting-butter texture, uplifting floral notes and mild, succulent flavor. The sweet floral nose lingers long after the last sip. Luckily, our Formosa Pouchong offers a worthwhile second steeping, as its leaves continue to unfurl and release their treasures. Steep at 195°F for 3 minutes
A little pricier than others, but worth it when you want to savor a cup of tea. It is delicate oolong, but very flavorful. It has a floral, almost lilac, aroma and flavor. I enjoyed this more when steeped about a minute more than recommended.
This tea is a bit expensive and not worth it in my opinion, I know others like it though!
