drank Nai Xiang Oolong by TeaSpring
27 tasting notes

I bought this tea in late ’14 or early ’15 and can confirm that it is not a flavored milk oolong as it may have been previously. Pure unadulterated leaves, quite large when unfurled with a pleasant milky, floral aroma. Flavor is creamy, smooth, floral with a light spicy minerality. Not complex, pleasant. Brewed gongfu style, the middle & later steepings were my favorites.

EDIT: I just opened my second order of this tea from late 2015. It was not nearly as good as the previous order. Almost no flavor unless you over leaf or over brew. At that point, it’s bitter. Flavored? I’m trying sure, but I won’t order from this company again. Shockingly inconsistent!

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Mineral, Orchid, Sweet

My 38 year commitment with tea began as a morning relationship with simple malty blacks with notes of honey, cacao & spice. I’m still faithful to this ritual, however my tastes have evolved from a bag of leaves into loose leaf varietals with depth and power. After an hour or more, as my morning wake-up ritual with one of my black teas draws to a close, I become rather fickle.

I adore oolong or sheng pu-erh in the afternoon, although I regularly have short flings with white tea or matcha. Green leaf is my least favorite, although I do enjoy it from time to time. I have also recently begun to enjoy shou, after an abysmal first experience.
