I went to a Japanese sushi/hibachi place last night that has "Japanese Oolong" on the menu. I tried to order it the last time I was there, and they'd run out. So I ended up drinking a pot of green. Last night, however, they were not out, so I ordered the oolong.
They brought it out in the same small pot as the green. It was super light in color, lighter than any I've brewed at home. When I first tasted it, it had the most distinct and noticeable texture on my tongue... very silky, almost thick, not exactly oily but as if there was a silky texture left over on my tongue after. The taste was super mild on the first cup, but stronger on the next couple that got me closer to the bottom of the pot. It was enjoyable, but not nearly as good as the oolongs I've been having at home. I got curious to look at the inside of the pot because I loved the shape and size of it... and was wondering if it was glazed or not glazed, so I opened it up... and there was an infuser basket inside with... a TEA BAG. LOL. There was no identifying paper tag on the end of the string so I couldn't investigate the brand. I wouldn't have bought it anyway, it was just curiousity.
I still want the pot.
Anyway, just wanted to share my first oolong restaurant experience.
