Tea Review: Tea Setter Wild Arbor Oriental Beauty
Wild Arbor Oriental Beauty is an apt name for this Wuliang Mountain oolong from Tea Setter. The leaves are pretty and the taste is reminiscent of summer's stone fruits.
I am pleased that Nicole of Tea for Me Please contacted me about reviewing this and other teas from Tea Setter. I am looking forward to preparing the other oolongs and even the puerhs (the latter is not among my favorite types of tea).
I steeped 4 grams of leaves in my gaiwan and enjoyed several infusions of 15 second steep periods. I paired this tea with a medium cheddar and the combination was fantastic. I didn't pair it with blue cheese but will do so with the other oolongs. Stay tuned!
