PF Chang's Oolong

Postby LiliNathan » Feb 28th, '06, 12:16

I had the most fantastic Oolong at this restaurant. I brought a bag (they are made like Adagio's bags with lots of room) home, cut it open and I've been brewing the best Oolong for the last 2 days.

They discribe this tea on their menu as being the strongest and darkest Oolong on their list. I think the name includes "Dragon" in it.

Does anyone know which tea I'm referring to and if Adagio carries one similar?

Thanks!

Lavender,

Is this the same exact tea as PF's? I do taste an apricot or peachy undernote in there.

Is there anything comparable to that at Adagio's?

Thanks for the reply. I might have to pick this up. I'm really loyal to Adagio for teaching me all that I've learned but that tea....

I am pretty sure PF Chang's serves Revolution tea, but not 100%. I have not tried this Oolong myself, from either Revolution or PF Chang's. I have had many other Revolution teas and I would recommend them. Also, I haven't had all of Adagio's Oolongs, just TKY and Pouchong, so I can not answer.

Ok Lavender. You've convinced me. I'll give that Revolution Tea a shot. It does look really, really good.

Have a great day!

LiliNathan, Oolong is made up of two Chinese characters. The first one 'Wu' or 'Oo' means 'black' or 'dark'. 'Long' or 'Lung' means 'dragon' (or sometimes 'snake', depending on the context).
