Thousand Arrows Tea from Shanti Tea

Tea Type: Oolong

Where To Buy: Shanti Tea

Product Description:

A rare, medium-bodied, visually stunning hand-twisted tea.

A rare, visually stunning hand-twisted biodynamic oolong tea from the celebrated Idulgashinna Tea Estate, consisting of 1-2 inch “spears” of green, cinnamon-colored and white leaves. The infusion is curly and very colorful, the liquor light and attractive with a medium body.

Tasters Review:

I used 1 tsp. leaf (20 arrows) per cup as the site suggested.

I didn’t think there was much of a smell to this tea – dry or once infused – but the color is lovely! Cinnamon or Honey-colored would probably best describe what I saw!

Flavor-wise I would agree with the medium-strength oolong description and say it reminded me of a toasty-sweet type-taste with a very slight nutty hint to it.

I think this is good and love the fact that it is different in many ways.

I did get successful multiple infusions on this one!  The 2nd infusion was more juicy and more nutty tasting.  The color was the same but had next to no aroma. I think I like the 2nd infusion better actually.
