Taiwan Oolong Tea, (Formosa Alishan Oolong)


Description
The Alishan Oolong is a superior high mountain oolong tea from Formosa (Taiwan). Lightly oxidized, it has a wonderfully creamy texture and rich floral taste with a delicate sweetness. This tea is grown on the Ali Mountain at the elevation of 1000 meters. The mountainsides are covered with fog or clouds, which are ideal for growing Oolong.

I'm still on the fence with this one.
I've made a few cups with this tea, and so far, it's been a slightly better than 50/50 success. It doesn't wow me, but it does have a unique flavor. Some days, I'm loving it, other days, it doesn't float my boat. But that's the nature of Oolongs. They are not to everyone's taste. Me, I love them, and I think I need to have more cups to find the hidden qualities of this tea.

Good milk oolong flavor, but it fades quickly
My favorite milk oolong is no longer available, and I've been searching for a replacement. It's not this one.

I had great expectations for this tea, because the pouch aroma is incredible — sweet and creamy, just the way I'd expect a milk oolong to be. The characteristic milk oolong flavor is there on the first steeping (195°F, 1:00 min.) although it's nowhere near as intense as the dry leaf aroma promises. The flavor is even less pronounced on the second steeping (195°F@1:30).

This isn't bad tea; it just doesn't have the intensity of flavor I like, and what flavor it has fades completely by the third steeping (195°F@3:00). After that, it's just unremarkable green tea.

Perhaps I've been spoiled by having been fortunate to have had access to a source of exceptionally fine milk oolong. Maybe the pouch I received was an anomalously weak batch...I dunno. I just know that my search for a luscious milk oolong continues. This isn't it.

Still, if you've never tried a milk oolong, this one will give you an idea what it's like, especially in the pouch aroma. But to get the real flavor and aroma of the milk oolong experience, use more than the normal amount of dry leaf, and don't expect to get more than two or three steepings.

Great products
Interesting flavor and it is apparent very fresh.
I wish this company affiliates with shop.com so that consumers can get cash back.

A Nice Milk Oolong
I am a fan of Milk Oolongs and have tried lots of them from many different sources. This is a very nice one- not as buttery as others, more of an actual 'milky' taste, though it's mild.There's also a slight sweetness and a little nutty taste. There is no bitterness or astringency. I brew at 185 for 3 min and can get a nice 2nd brew. I will order this again.

Better than I imagined
I like Oolong tea, and have tried different types from different distributors and this, by far, is one of the best I have tasted. Fresh, flavorful, marvelous aroma.

Aromatic, pleasant, and affordable
Don't have the finest pallette, but I couldn't taste anything sweet or fruity in this oolong which I was hoping for. However it is aromatic, pleasant, and affordable which is what I want in a tea. I do wish I could select samples of various teas so I could try out various teas beforehand to buy to my liking.

Imaginative sales pitch
It is a drinkable tea but fails to live up to its sales pitch or name

Review for Taiwan Milk Oolong Tea, (Jian Xuan)
very interesting taste, smooth flavor with almost an apricot after taste. I can taste is almost like a smoothe light fruity flavor with a slight grass flavor thats not over powering at all and a slight earthyness. A very good tea to relax and read a book with or to just relax and try to figure out the other possible flavores in this lol. Would recommend this and the price is worth it

Interesting!
Very yummy and interesting taste! It has a flavor I can't quite put my finger on, above and beyond any normal tea flavor. It's one that will be loved by those who enjoy some personality in their tea. I would classify this as a flavored tea.
