I am very new to tea, and I have really gotten to enjoy some of the nice oolongs from my local tea shop (Tea Embassy in Austin). Yesterday I had occasion to be in my local Asian Market, so I made my way over to the teas. Naturally, they had a pretty full selection, and I really didn't know quite where to start.
On a whim, I picked up a red can of oolong tea labeled as:
China Fujian Oolong Tea
Xiamen Tea Imp. & Exp. Co. Ltd.
and on the side:
Sea Dyke Brand
For 125g, it was dirt-cheap at $6.00. It doesn't hold a candle (so far) to the Monkey Picked and Good Leaf "Jia Yeh" that I got from Tea Embassy, but it's still not bad.
Anyhow...I'm totally unfamiliar with this tea, but the fact that it occupies premium space in the local Asian market suggests that it has some merit. Can y'all tell me anything about this tea? Patience, please...I'm new.
