This is my first oolong, and another part of my dessert sampler from David’s
It really expanded in my tea ball! I’ll have to use less next time, perhaps, since there was no room for the leaves to move around at all after a minute or two..
The smell is divine, rich and sweet, but not artificially so. More of a morning sweetness then a dessert one, if you ask me.
After a few sips, i’m unsure of the actual tea flavour, but the vanilla aftertaste is just as divine as the smell! I don’t really taste the vanilla until after I swallow, but then it’s all I can taste! The tea taste in my mouth isn’t that bad either. I’m starting to get the hang of this tea business I think! Oolong seems nice, not too strong, not to overtly “tea-y”. =)
