Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Tonight, I dug up an Ali Shan Red Oolong from Norbu Tea. It has been opened and stored in a zip lock bag for a few months in my refrigerator. The tea still taste good, a little regret I didn't order more. :lol:

There are a few tea houses in the Bay Area where you can sit back and relax, but I usually just get together with a few friends at home (pre-COVID time).
@pantry
Thanks. If you have the tea and setup, at home is probably the best location now :lol:
