Unknown Oolong of Mystery!

Don't remember how much I paid for it, I bought it at an Asian supermarket in Oregon. Really tasty though to be honest, and can withstand 4-5 steepings sometimes more.

If its cheap and you like it then that's great. I like my expensive teas as much as the next man but I'm always on the look out for cheap teas that are decent. Tea can get expense and cheap doesnt always mean bad.

I agree this tea doesn't taste bad at all, there have been a few times where either my steepings or tea:water ratio is off and the brew can become a little bitter or astringent, but other times, it has had a nice roasty, floral sweetness that I really enjoy. It's a light golden liquor, so it's probably a light roasted TGY.

Gives me a little bit of alertness and loosens my muscles a bit. I feel good generally after drinking any tea.
