Where To Buy: Drink T
Pouchong tea is a type of oolong closer to a green tea than a typical oolong. This is due to Pouchong tea being oxidized 15% or less while most Oolongs are oxidized about 30-70%. Pouchong means “the wrapped kind”, referring to the practice of wrapping the leaves in paper during the oxidation process.
Our Pouchong brews a golden green liquor with mild sweetness and delicate floral notes. It has a smooth flavor, making it a perfect everyday tea.
Bring water to just under boil (185-195)
Steep Time: 3 – 4 Minutes
Number of Infusions: 1 – 2
Superior Pouchong from Drink T is really lovely! It’s Part Sweet – Part Floral and Completely Buttery!
Below is the original log of this tea from my Steepster TeaLog and normally I don’t post these here…but…I thought it was too silly NOT to post!
I know “mouth feel” is a technical/official tea tasting/reviewing term but it’s one of those words I don’t personally use a lot because it drives me nuts…sort of like the way the words “panties” or “shindig” drive me nuts and the way the word “chunk” drives my sister crazy and a friend of mine cringes every time he hears the word “moist”. I really don’t know what it is…I just don’t really like the word…I guess you could say it creeps me out. ANYHOW…I don’t know how else to describe this tho! Other than the “mouth feel” (eeeeekkkk cringe at the word) of this is TOP NOTCH!!!
This is a great Pouchong…totally lives up to it’s name! As for a little more on this specific tea to add to my original review…I really DO like this! It’s great hot, iced, with just about any kind of food, and anytime of day! This is probably one of my top 5 favorite teas from Drink T.
