From Terroir Tea

How We See It:
Here’s an organic rare spring tea that we were lucky enough to snag the last of for you. The grower plants and processes tea based on “tea grower spirits”, ensuring the tea contains the real taste of tea, or the “taste of nature.” The flavour is vegetal, sweet floral with hints of roasted nuts.

What’s In It:
oolong tea

Gongfu Sipdown (611)!

I acquired this tea quite a while ago, so this was pretty old by the time I got around to sampling it – but it was in a vacuum sealed package so that probably helped preserve it. It also tasted totally fine brewed up…

I drank this while trying my first ever cherimoya! Honestly, the tea was good/solid but the fruit was INCREDIBLE. It was inconvenient and messy to eat, but I was just blown away by how creamy the flesh of the fruit was and the incredible taste. This is what I wrote on instagram about both the tea and fruit, and how they worked together:

“I can definitely see why this fruit is called a “Custard Apple” – the creamy texture of the ripe flesh and subtle, sweet notes that taste almond like a subdued banana/mango hybrid are delicious, and work well with the sweet, floral and creamed honey notes of this Ali Shan. The intensity of both the fruit & tea match pretty dang well, and the nutty notes ofthe tea still contribute enough contrasting flavour…"

This was also, by pure happenstance, the fourth Ali Shan I had during the week!? Nothing against Ali Shan, but it’s not a favourite kind of oolong of mine, so I though it was weird how much I had it in such a short span of time…

I’m sad to see this store has closed. I always meant to order from them, but never did.

Definitely disappointing – I don’t think I ever had a bad tea from them. Very, very nice store!
