Six different Oolongs, all from Verdant Tea. I won't lie...it took almost 1 month to get these shipped directly from China from Verdant Tea, but the wait was worth it for sure. Once you drink some of this, you realize just how average the stuff is you can buy at even the best grocery stores. First of all, each of these teas just blooms into a whole leaf during steeping and the flavors are amazing. In wine terms, if Ceylon Black Tea is Cabernet, and Darjeeling is Pinot Noir, then Oolongs is the Champagne of teas. My personal favorite from the six pictured is the Zi Mu Dan. Beautiful floral notes with a creamy, yet sparkling texture.
