Wow, this is an amazing oolong! I’m so thrilled I ordered this.

Again, tonight, I wasn’t quite in the right mood for oolong, but the first sip of this quickly changed that. I haven’t had too many oolongs to date but this one is unlike any of the ones I’ve tried. They’ve all been great, but there’s something different about this one that makes it special. I’m on my first steep and I’m excited to see what subsequent steeps will bring.

Update: I believe this will be a permanent fixture in my cupboard, even if I drink it rarely.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
