drank Citron Oolong by Rishi Tea
1908 tasting notes

The taste of this tea isn’t at all tart or sour so it’s in no danger of venturing into Tazo’s Sweet Wild Orange territory thankfully. I think I am picking up some slightly floral notes but they’re very subtle much more so than what I’d expect from all those jasmine blossoms in the tea.

The oolong hardly looks like it’s even there in the dry tea, but it really unfolds a great deal as the tea steeps so that in the end it’s taking up much of the space in my strainer.

The resteep (@ 4:30 min) was nice and strong too, and I think this tea could probably handle another one or two steeps after this if I felt so inclined.

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
