Tea Review: Sullivan Street's green oolong

Technically speaking "green oolong" is a misnomer.  Oolong is semi-oxidized while green tea is minimally oxidized.  However, Sullivan Street's "Green Oolong" is less robust than other oolongs the shop carries, for example its "Ancient Beauty."  The Ancient Beauty retains its caramel sweetness even if prepared with boiling water while Green Oolong requires lower temperature water for steeping.

The dry leaf of the Green Oolong is beautiful and aromatic. The liquor is mellow with a sweet and creamy finish.

We also purchased an ounce of Milk Oolong which we have not yet prepared.  Stay tuned!
