One of the most defining and wonderful developments from this year's World Tea Expo was encountering Zealong. The New Zealand grower-producer-seller of New Zealand Oolong makes a unique and wonderful product.

The leaves for this furtive tea are made in the fashion of Taiwanese Oolongs. They're tightly curled balls of a dark green with some stems attached. The dry leaf aroma is clearly roasted with some vegetal undertones of steamed cabbage.
The texture and flavor are smooth on the palate with no appreciable astringency. A bit of vegetal bitterness combines with a buttery sweetness and a bit of a roasty tail keeps this tea interesting every time.
I recommend this oolong to fans of oolong teas and milk teas.
