While in Australia I regularly visited a couple of tea stores. I finally decided in the final days what teas I would buy to bring home with me.
One of the stores was called The Tea Centre and had a nice range of loose leaf teas.
You can see the tins of tea lined up on the shelves. They are all full of wonderful loose leaf teas.
One of the teas that I bough was Vietnam High Mountain Oolong. I like a good oolong tea and had not had any from Vietnam, so it was a logical selection. The tea was listed as a green oolong so I knew that it would have a lighter oxidation.
Exquisitely lush, well-twisted leaves unfurl to produce a gentle yet full flavoured brew that is both nutty and vegetal but with a lovely soft finish.
I agree with this description. The tea has a fuller taste than most green teas I have had from Taiwan, but not as much as the dark oolongs. It definitely has a soft finish which is something that I really enjoy about most oolong teas.
I bought another tea at The Tea Centre that I may write about later this week.
