How It Tastes

Golden Dragon Oolong is one of the world's most delicious teas. The aroma is floral and fruity like a bowl of ripe peaches. The taste is incredibly sweet, with a backbone of dry, peach-pit taste and the aroma of tropical flowers. The liquor is golden colored and smooth to the very end.

History

Traditional hand-rolling brings to life the delicate shape and flavor of this rare Taiwan oolong. The best quality is produced only in summer, when the fields are affected by leaf hopper insects who stimulate a response in the tea leaves, creating their unique flavor and complexity. Golden Dragon Oolong is a much-loved tea that has several other trade names: Oriental Beauty, White Tip and Bai Hao Oolong.

My experience with this tea (labeled as being from Mighty Leaf) was quite different from that of the first reviewer. I had some of the original Peet's Golden Dragoon Oolong left over from the past, and was able to compare the current rendition to the old. In form, the current rendition was as good or better (perhaps due to me being near the end of the original Peet's). In flavor, in was all that I was used to and remember: excellent.

We've been drinking Oolong teas for 20 years and Golden Dragon is still one of our favorites. A beautifully balanced flavor, with good intensity.

This is my all time favorite tea. Unlike the other reviewer who was greatly disappointed with the Mighty Leaf version, I have found it to be exactly the same. I have been very satisfied with the Might Leaf in the teas I've always used, but like I said the Golden Dragon is my favorite!

Extremely disappointed. Golden Dragon Ooling was my favorite Peet's tea for over 20 years. I decided to try the Mighty Leaf offering -- allegedly the same as the Peet's -- and opened the tin alongside the last tin I had of the Peet's version. Two ounces of the Peet's filled the tin. The tea was almost entirely whole-leaf, fragrant, complex on the palate. The Mighty Leaf tea filled only half the container and was mostly ground tea and small leaf pieces. It was flat and simple when brewed -- nothing like the consistenly excellent oolong I had been drinking for more than two decades. I will never buy another Mighty Leaf tea again.
