From Adagio Teas - Duplicate

Oolong tea from the WuYi mountains in Fujian province, China. A beautifully made, deeply complex tea. The aroma is very rich and savory, roasted vegetables, minerally and earthy. There’s a deep, ripe fruitness in the background, but faintly. The flavor is slightly honey-floral and nutty, white sesame, sweetened burdock root (fans of Japanese sweets, anyone?), barley. Satisfying and hearty, for a tea. Perfect for multiple infusions so you can tease out many layers of intriguing flavor.

Another tea from Lena F. So this is the tea that has all the weight loss hype… Kinda ironic since that’s the very reason I got into loose leaf and am just now trying it over 2 years later.

I love the look and feel of the raw leaf. Most twisted tea is very thin- this reminded me more of a small gnarled twig. There’s almost no scent, but what scent is there is a light and slightly sweet one.

2.25g/6oz. Gosh after all my excitement over Japanese greens, it seems odd to use my tea scale. I missed it!

I wasn’t sure how long to steep it so I decided to go on the light side. The liquor is a light copper, the aroma sweet but with depth and complexity. The taste is smooth and much like the aroma- sweet but not fruity, sugary, or desserty and a touch, but only a touch, earthy. It’s deep and complex w/ being strong or bitter. I don’t care that it doesn’t live up to the hype of being a miracle tea. I’ll still be drinking a lot of this!

2nd infusion, 4 min. Quite similar to the 1st. Liquor is a bit lighter maybe and more orangy- a burnt orange color. The taste is also maybe a but lighter, smoother.

LENA

you are most welcome. I had no idea about this being a “miracle tea” or weight loss tea. I just liked the taste.

Cofftea

3rd infusion, 5 min. Orange liquor, reminds me of pumpkin pie. Slightly sweet, smooth, and grounded.

Cofftea

As much as I LOVE my bowla matcha, I like to cleanse my palate after drinking a bowl- not necessarily of the taste, but more of the texture and mouth feel. 4th infusion, 6min. Liquor is a bit lighter and more yellowish. Taste is very similar to infusion 3- smooth and clean.

Cofftea

The snow has stopped, but w/ 15 to -30 wind chills I’m so cold even in the house that I don’t want to move even to make tea or lunch. It’s 2pm and I just got done eating. Lasagna tv dinner sauce was on the sweet side, only 2 layers (I prefer 3), and the sausage had a LOT of fennel in it. I like mine made w/ beef for that reason. Now, on to what I had w/ that lasagna. Infusion 5, 7 min. Holy cow! Is this the same tea? Am I suddenly on top of the Grand Canyon? Because this had a huge drop off in both liquor and flavor. The light yellowish green liquor makes it look like a white or green tea and the taste definitely matches that of a light, slightly sweet green or white. That’s NOT bad, but I’m disappointed it dropped off so drastically. I’ve been surprised before, I’m praying it makes a come back next time.

Cofftea

Madison doesn’t want to go outside even though she needs to cuz it’s so cold and windy, but I don’t blame her. This means letting a lot of cold air in the house. Making infusion 6 to warm up. The liquor is back! OK, well I forced it. I would have normally steeped this infusion for 8 min, but bumped it up to 10. The liquor is now a dull mustard brown and the flavor is exactly like infusion 5 only stronger.

Cofftea

Infusion 7, 12 min. The liquor is a lovely golden color and the taste is light and clean.

Cofftea

Infusion 7, 16 min. Liquor is lighter than infusion 7, and flavor sweeter than it’s been in a while.

Cofftea

Infusion 8, 20 min. lighter, but still sweet and good.

Cofftea

oops, last infusion was 9. this is 10. 27 min. VERY light liquor- champagneish. Taste is also very light, but sweet and clean.

Cofftea

Infusion 11, 36min. Liquor same as #10, flavor a bit stronger. These leaves are dead. Funny.. the leaves infusions 2-11 looked like raffia. I would have thought they’d be totally flat by now.

Has a similar beginning taste to Bigelow Oolong but with a very light flavor. The end taste is pretty bitter. Both the bitterness and the beginning flavor being light keep this from being a really good tea.

A decent green tea, but does taste green. It is smooth, however. I"m sure if you like green tea it’s great, but since I’m more of a black tea consumer, I still prefer the balck teas, but for a change of pace this is fine.

Hmm, I’m not really getting any notes with this one. It almost reminds me of the tea that you get at a Chinese restaurant. Light, unoffensive, not especially memorable. It smells sweet, it’s a tiny bit creamy at the front of the sip but not enough to remember. Not bad, but not something I’d likely stock.
