Fujian, China: Fujian is a coastal province in southeastern China where the finest oolong, white, and jasmine teas are produced. According to the written record, teas have been produced there for well over 1,600 years. Growers currently produce five different categories of tea, most of which originated in the province.
These teas were made for everyday use, meaning that they are extremely versatile when it comes to preparation. Everyday Oolong and Tie Guan Yin can be made in a large pot to share, or in Gaiwans and teacups for personal drinking. In general, Oolong teas require hot or near boiling water, but always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
A decent, pleasant cup. Just nothing too complex or expanding.
