This was part of my birthday treat to myself. I’ve been very “meh” about certain oolongs in my life so far, but I read the item description of this and thought it sounded quite tasty. Sandalwood? Honey orchid? Juicy? Yum!

Like the leaves. Very long, twisted, green, sweet in a fruity way. The brew is indeed tasty, but… huh. There was that fruity-melony-juicy taste I was expecting, the kind I get a bit of from tieguanyin but I want more of. And then… there’s this taste at the tip of the tongue that is unexpected. What is it, buttery?

This tea deserves a more eloquent review; unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until another tasting (when I’m not having ice cream cake at the same time) to give it what it deserves. But since I can tell it’s an enjoyable and interesting tea, I’m going to go ahead with a number rating since it’s a high one. Yay for oolongs I actually like!

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.
