I’ve really come to appreciate oolong teas in the past year or so. While I’ll try just about any oolong, my favorites tend to be the traditional kinds, ones that lilt with fragrance out of your cup and then go down buttery-smooth. Tea From Taiwan’s Hua Gang Oolong is one of those lovelies. Read more about it – and find out which YA fantasy novel I paired with it – at my latest tea review at A Bibliophile’s Reverie!
I’m still combing through the smorgasbord of oolong samples I’ve received since over the past few months. Today’s pick is Hua Gang Oolong, courtesy of Tea From Taiwan. Hua Gang is harvested on Mount Li (Pear Mountain), one of Taiwan’s most prized tea regions and located in the country’s Jade Mountains range. The plantation’s high altitudes (about 2400 meters, or roughly 1.5 miles) and cool, humid climate is said to be ideal for growing oolongs. So, how does Hua Gang tickle the senses of sight, smell, and taste? Let’s open the packet and find out!
