Hua Gang Oolong Tea


3 of 5 Stars3 of 5 Stars

I've been a great fan of Hua Gang tea for years but the last shipment I received was somewhat different. The flavour and smell isn't as fruity as before. Also, I notice that the flavour comes out better at a higher temperature than normal. Normally I used a thermometer to reach exactly 83 degrees (inside the teapot), now it must be a bit higher. I'm not sure why this is, perhaps the tea is less fresh, as harvest was in spring?
