It’s been a while since my last Rou Gui Oolong that I had to look it up and I believe the last Rou Gui I did have was from Cloudwalker Teas. So when I noticed Rou Gui Oolong from White2Tea I knew I HAD to try it.
This Rou Gui Oolong from White2Tea has a bit of a roasted aroma and taste to it. It infuses fairly dark for an oolong which is more or less a medium brown when you look at it in the cup! In addition to this Rou Gui Oolong from White2Tea being a bit roasted it also provides a good amount of rock and/or mineral flavor to it, too! This makes sense because it is a Wuyi Yancha or ‘Rock Tea’ after all.
The end sip on to the after taste has a lingering sweetness to it that makes me crave more. There are times I find comfort in the natural creaminess this tea gives off, too! It has a very full taste that seems to comes full circle! Rou Gui Oolong from White2Tea MUST go on my list of top oolongs I’ve tried this year!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: White2Tea
