I finally figured out why this tea put me off the first time I tried it. It reminded me of that hojicha I tried a couple of months ago that I really didn’t like. I guess this means I’m not big on roasty flavors; to me, they just taste like burnt hay and it’s not really a flavor I want to have in my tea time. I’ve come around to liking this tea well enough, but it’s not really one I crave. I think it’s best when you can taste the butteriness in it, something I’ve accomplished exactly once. Maybe I should try more green oolongs?

I do have an oolong sampler from Teavivre coming my way. I’m looking forward to trying the teas featured in it, because my experiences with oolongs are seldom what I want them to be. (Of course, the other one was old as hell and it took me doubling the leafage to get any complexity of flavor.)

Bio

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
