Pro: very smooth, no astringency. Con: a little lacking on flavor.
This is my first Adagio tea experience! I bought the white tea sampler, dragon (aka oolong) sampler, and one sample of Coconut Pouchong. I’m excited to try out another online retailer and what I hope to be some fantastic new teas!
This is a very light tea. It actually seems to be more like a white tea than oolong because I’m missing that vegetal “oolong” quality.
The liquor is pale yellow/green. The taste is a very much like a white tea, subtle and somewhat floral. It’s a good hydrating tea.
I think I understand what others have described as a “buttery mouthfeel.” But I personally wouldn’t describe this tea that way. It’s not pronounced enough for me to compare it to butter, especially not movie theatre butter!
Overall, it’s a good light tea. But it’s not knocking my socks off with flavor. I’m more excited to try the Coconut Pouchong because I think this needs some added flavorings.
First steep was boiling water for 3 minutes. Second steep was 185-190 degrees for 5 minutes.
