We love oolong so when Umi Tea Set asked us to sample one we said, "Yes, please!"
Umi Tea Set sent us a gorgeous box of oolong tea along with a chocolate brown gawain in which to perfectly steep the leaves. The gawain was lovely and warm in the hand and felt like the best brewing vessel for these twisted, large leaves in varying shades of black and green.
Once steeped, each twisted leaf opened up into a single medium-sized green tea leaf which yielded 3 good steepings of pale green/gold liquid that started out floral and moved to fishy by the last steeping. Refreshing and light, this oolong was enjoyed by all our tasters. Thank you, Umiteasets.com. Find Umi Tea Sets on facebook.
