Hi! I am really glad to be here and expect that you will help turn this somewhere between novice and slightly informed person into a super-semi-expert.. Or at least someone who has drunk more really good tea!

What kind of Oolong? Mostly the flowery, perfumy ones. I really like the toasty, roasty ones, and the variety of clear vegetable-y notes can be amazing: corn, asparagus, tobacco, etc. But the really great Formosa Jade Oolongs with the lilac and gardenia smells kind of blow my mind...and seem to have got me off of anti-depressants :P

Oolong Recommendations

Postby Angela Justice » Jan 3rd, '08, 13:07

Hi Laurence!

Glad to find a fellow oolong lover. Have you tried the oolongs from Adagio?

The oolong #18 is a Jade Oolong from Taiwan that has that beautiful floral round green notes with very full flavor. The Pouchong, also called Baochong or Baozhong, from northern Taiwan has the beautiful lilac notes you mentioned in your description of your favorite oolongs. If you want roasty, toastiness, and corn give the Wuyi oolong a try.

Would love to hear your thoughts on them after you taste...

Also, welcome to you Angela. Are you the newest Adagio member? I must have missed the official intro here on TeaChat...

The oolong #18 is a great Taiwan oolong. I received it as a very much appreciated gift from Adagio for modding the forum. It is great, just as you describe. I hope they can continue to offer this oolong and always match that incredible floral, sweet aroma. The price point also makes it a really good value!!!
