Superior Pouchong from Drink T

December28

Tea Type: Oolong

Where To Buy: Drink T

Product Description:

Pouchong tea is a type of oolong closer to a green tea than a typical oolong. This is due to Pouchong tea being oxidized 15% or less while most Oolongs are oxidized about 30-70%. Pouchong means “the wrapped kind”, referring to the practice of wrapping the leaves in paper during the oxidation process.

Our Pouchong brews a golden green liquor with mild sweetness and delicate floral notes. It has a smooth flavor, making it a perfect everyday tea.

Bring water to just under boil (185-195)
Steep Time: 3 – 4 Minutes
Number of Infusions: 1 – 2
Sweetener: Optional
Cream: No

Tasters Review:

Superior Pouchong from Drink T is really lovely!  It’s Part Sweet – Part Floral and Completely Buttery!

Below is the original log of this tea from my Steepster TeaLog and normally I don’t post these here…but…I thought it was too silly NOT to post!

I know “mouth feel” is a technical/official tea tasting/reviewing term but it’s one of those words I don’t personally use a lot because it drives me nuts…sort of like the way the words “panties” or “shindig” drive me nuts and the way the word “chunk” drives my sister crazy and a friend of mine cringes every time he hears the word “moist”.   I really don’t know what it is…I just don’t really like the word…I guess you could say it creeps me out.  ANYHOW…I don’t know how else to describe this tho!  Other than the “mouth feel” (eeeeekkkk cringe at the word) of this is TOP NOTCH!!!

This is a great Pouchong…totally lives up to it’s name!  As for a little more on this specific tea to add to my original review…I really DO like this!  It’s great hot, iced, with just about any kind of food, and anytime of day!  This is probably one of my top 5 favorite teas from Drink T.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
