 Flowers of Wuyi

Roasted and Unroasted Oolong 

We had so much fun with this pair of Organic Wuyi Oolongs that we wanted to share them with you! Freshly made this winter, it was so memorable to try this tea both before and after the roasting process. 

Taiwanese Wuyi Cultivar is grown because of its very strong floral character when made into a greenish oolong, and its suitability for roasting. With these two teas you get the best of both worlds! The unroasted version of this tea is wildly floral with some sweet grass notes in the finish as well. The roasted version gives off a deep stewed fruit flavor with just the hint of caramel in the aftertaste. Both are great teas in their own right and drinking them together is a fun, fascinating and educational experience!

A note about the Cultivar: Wuyi is often used as the name of cultivar, place and style of tea interchangeably leading to confusion in the English speaking tea world. We use it to describe ONLY a cultivar, a cultivar bred in Taiwan for the last 70 years or so from a plant from the Wuyi region of China. Is it exactly similar to Wuyi cultivars from China? Probably not! So we call it Taiwanese Wuyi to avoid any confusion.

Learning is fun!

Thanks putting together this tasty pairing. Learning is easy and fun when you put it into an experiential kit. Both teas are good, especially as they cool. And since the only difference is roasting, other reasons for flavor differences are ruled out.

Delicious tea!

The roasted version was very tasty! Great, sweet slightly thick mouthfeel. Interesting floral notes too. This one is a winner for me!
