Fo Shou (Bergamot) Oolong

My Review

Intriguingly, this little oolong tea from Life in Teacup comes with the word bergamot, bracketed. A relative of Earl Grey then? Not at all. Fo Shou is named after the Chinese bergamot, but a little research seems to suggest that this is due to the tea’s fragrance, not any added flavours.

I find this oolong to sit somewhere near pouchong. It is a lighter tea with an understated floral perfume and a faded green infusion with wistful, sweet flavours. A mild, delicate kind of oolong that sits very well on the palate.

A beautiful black tea with a subtle, nutty flavour and a hint of caramel.

Come and enjoy a pu-erh that starts slow but blossoms around the third infusion with a surge of sweet smokiness.
