drank Organic Light Oolong by Arum Tea
4843 tasting notes


I tried to time my sampling of this and the Medium Oolong from Arum to be fairly close together so that my memory was fresh. I wanted to see if I could taste the difference between the Light and the Medium.

The dry leaf looks very similar. But the brewed liquid is different – this one definitely has a lighter color and the flavor is lighter also.

The tea begins very delicately, but as I continued to sip, the flavors developed. Light, earthy, with subtle herbaceous notes. A smooth tea. It’s not really buttery or creamy, but it has a smooth silky texture and flavor. Distant fruity notes. Floral notes that develop as I continue to sip.

Later infusions became even smoother, more seamless.

The biggest differences between the two: the medium was more of a nutty, honeyed flavor while the light has more fruit and flower notes. Both are really good and I recommend exploring both!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
