My overall rating of this tea may be a bit misleading.  I rated it 3.5 because it is a basic oolong tea. It tastes good and I enjoyed drinking it.  In fact, this oolong tea is quite easy to drink and I could easily put away several cups of it in a day.  You may be asking yourself, why only a 3.5 then?  Why not a 5?  This tea didn’t get a 5 or even a 4 from me because, like it said, it is a basic tea.  The flavor isn’t overly complex or intriguing.  Though not very exciting, the oolong bitterness is there (and lingers), thus this tea is worth drinking!

This tea is nice because you know just what to expect, a tasty oolong tea!  Anyone who enjoys this style would certainly be happy with it.  It is easy to drink so it can be had alone, or with a meal.  If you like oolong tea, give this one a go and let us know what you think!

I agree with Abby! Funny how that happens more & more 😉 This is a decent tasty tea but not overly strong. I think this might even be the type of tea that you could toss in your to-go mug and leave there. It would also be good to keep at work for an easy afternoon teatime break. Don’t have access to cream and sugar? That’s OK because I liked to black too. It is certainly not fussy but very reliable, dependable, and does have a mild but true oolong flavor. This would be a great tea for someone who wants to try the flavor of oolong without wanting a very strong tea. I would be interested to try this in a loose-leaf variety to see if it packed a little more punch.

P.S. Cousin Vicki tried this tea and agrees with Abby & I too!
