Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon Oolong Tea 'Wood Dragon'

Tea Information:
Tea: Wood Dragon
Type: Oolong Tea
Company: Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon

I had this at Lady Mendl's Tea Salon (Place Review)

Steep Information:
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes (per the waiter)
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Steeped Tea Smell: Vegetal, floral, toasty
Flavor: Nutty, toasty
Body: Light
Aftertaste: Toasty
Liquor: Translucent pale green (not: lighting was candle light)

I think it needed to steep longer.

Second cup I added the sugar cube, the tea was overpowered.

Third cup I added a piece of candied ginger, which made no difference.

Fourth cup over the same piece of ginger brought a tang that went well with the toasty vegetal oolong.

I drank two pots of Wood Dragon Oolong through the five courses.

I purchased some to bring home, I think it was a nice light oolong.

Rating: 3/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing

I purchased this product. All my reviews are as unbiased as possible, whether I buy or receive free product. I accept no other compensation other than free product.
