At first scent, the leaves don’t make me think of anything special. I only smell a nice earthy oolong with a hint of sweetness in the aroma. There weren’t any steeping instructions with this, so I opted for 3tsp in 16oz at 190 for 3 minutes. The light gold-amber liquid smells strongly of the oolong’s earthiness with a hint of smokiness. The taste of the liquor is strange – I had to take a few sips to really comprehend the complex flavor. It’s very much an oolong, but has a subtle sweetness to it, like a honey flavor. The flavor takes over the whole mouth in a pleasing sensation, lingering on the tongue. I only had a sample of this, but I would definitely recommend it.

Flavors: Earth, Honey, Smoke, Sweet

Learning more about tea every day.

Likes: Greens, whites, oolongs, blacks, and herbals! Just depends on the mood :)
Dislikes: Coconut, melon, chocolate, peach, cherry

I also collect antique teaware (Chinese and Japanese).

I’d love to try new types, varieties, etc. I’m still exploring pu-erh to make a complete decision whether to keep trying it or just count it as a loss.

I’d love to trade with anyone who likes something that I might have! I just have to get everything added to my cupboard first :)
