215 Tasting Notes
Love opening the package — makes me hungry for barbecue, or to once again be on a camping trip with my son. But back to the tea ….. a lovely golden liquor. This is only the 2nd tea of this type which I’ve tasted, but I can say it’s smoother than the first (or am I just developing the taste buds a bit?) Some folks report drinking this with milk and sweetener, but i’ll wait ’til next time to try that. This is going down good just as it is.
This was the 3rd steeping on these leaves. I let it brew 10 minutes (compared to 3 min for the first pass) so I’ll be discarding the leaves after this. This is a full-leaf tea, like most of the better oolongs, in my experience. The tea is pale greenish gold in my glass mug, neither too grassy-tasting nor astringent. Not as flowery as some oolongs, but mellow vegetal aroma is quite enjoyable.
