Recommend a Lightly Roasted Oolong

by beachape » Oct 19th, '13, 12:18


I am interested in picking up a high quality lightly roasted oolong 2013 harvest. Maybe a tie guan yin, dong ding, or other lightly roasted oolong. Looking for light flavor, nothing with a too overpowering flavor. Prefer a light, slightly flowery flavor rather than the toasted/charcoal earthy flavor.

Prefer a vendor that offers sale of 50grams or less. Have heard some decent reviews of hou de, teaspring, dragon tea house, but couldn't find a good consensus. Haven't bought from any of those vendors before.

Thanks for your help!

I suggest you this seller, in particular the lot 214, lot 227 and lot 245 for a light roasted oolong (in lot 227 the roasting level is lower than 214 and 245) and lot 226 for a flowery aroma without roasting flavours.
