I was very curious about this tea. You all know how the descriptions can catch your eye, and you think – HMMMPH- what’s -—- taste like? In this case, ORCHID, they don’t smell, they are not fragrant flowers, so???? HIGH FRAGRANCE, lightly roasted and somewhat sweet rock tea. The second brew, less fragrance less sweet and fell flat… I’m still figuring this one out, (I’m glad it was a sample) I wasn’t that impressed because it came on strong and left me hanging with a blank WTHeck?

I am quoting the website on this one because it is spot on! Not only is it spot on, it’s INCREDIBLY affordable when compared to other oolong prices!!!
as quoted from TeaSource:
" This semi-ball oolong tea is on the “green” side of oolong teas. It produces a cup that is extremely aromatic. The liquor is sweet, floral (think lilacs), and silky with a tiny bit of a mineral note just to make it interesting. It also has a little more body than most “green” oolongs. "

drank Milk Oolong Tea by TeaSource

This is the ‘Milky’ Oolong or flavored oolong. It’s tasting like buttered popcorn and floral green oolong. I enjoy this tea on occasion, and it’s great iced as well! It’s not too thick either!
Western style brewing and at least 2 or 3 steeps.

I was introduced to the tea world in 2004, when my sister and her family moved to Canada. I fell in love with all of the different varieties and flavors of tea there!
Then, thanks to the internet, I found more tea! I love watching Don and Celine from Mei Leaf on youtube. If I have ever had questions about tea, I can find the answers there… which was a “rabbit hole” in a good way!

My ratings of tea :

90-100 = Amaaaaazing tea and my favorite, will never run out type of tea.

80-90= Very good tea, will purchase again when ready.

70-80= Maybe, after waiting a while and re-trying the tea, I will give it a go again.

60-70= Probably not going to repurchase, but my curiosity has been met.

59 or less= ABSOLUTELY YUK, Spit it out, gagged or tasted something that resembled a tea and was actually a road apple from some barn animal!

My favorite tea shops so far that have delivered some great teas: (.com’s)

Tea Source
Mei Leaf
Yunnan Sourcing/Taiwan Sourcing
Tea Vivre
Siam Tea Shop

My favorite local tea shops are very limited. I really enjoy The Tea Cozy in Sacramento, CA and there’s a great tea shop, TeaXotics in El Dorado Hills, CA. Both shops are masterful tea blenders, and can satisfy an urge to try something different. And the knowledge of the staff at both shops is amazing and so is the customer service!
