First of 4 teas and 1 free sample I bought from Mandarin’s Tea Room. Decided it was “time” to try some expensive teas.
This is definitely a more full bodied and well rounded cup compared to other oolongs. I have come close to this through some of Seven Cups’ Lao Cong Shui Xian, also old bush.
I decided to use half the sample and save the rest for later, so I got maybe only ~8 infusions.

My favorite teas are Taiwan high mountain, Anxi, Wuyi, and dancong oolongs. I also need my deep steamed sencha every now and then. I’m not totally into flavoreds but I’m always up for interesting flavors (like ATR’s Nirvana and Toasted Fig). My favorite natural flavors are roasted and floral.

I have a BA in Biochemistry from Smith College with a minor in Japanese. I have a Masters of Bioscience from Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA.

I love J-R&B and J-Urban and used to do a radio show on WOZQ Northampton, MA. I also play WoW (Aireene on Proudmoore).
