First cup of the season. It;s always a treat. I only drink this tea in December as I am beginning to prep myself for the holiday season.

Tried this for the first time today. YUM!
Helped me wake up for my class tonight. The folks at Harney Soho always have great suggestions of tea.

Tasted this one at the Harney and Sons SoHo tasting bar. What a lovely oolong! It was a very mellow flavor leaving your taste buds refreshed.

drank Wuyi Cassia by Harney & Sons

Harney SoHo had this in their Tea flight this weekend, so they posted a description on their blog. I have updated the Tea info for Steepster, but will also post the description here for those still curious parties:

Wuyi Cassia, a cliff tea (Yancha) oolong grows in the Wu Yi mountains in northern Fujian province. Cassia translates to cinnamon, but don’t be fooled by the name! With the oolong’s tight stripe shape and black bloom color, the brewed tea, itself a bright orange color, has toasty, complex flavors.

Sounds like one I must try!

I can pick you up a sample at Harney Soho if you want and send it your way

Sorry for the lack of description on this one the last time I logged it. I was just overly excited by my new tea.
I am however having a tough time pinpointing the flavors in this. It’s is certainly hard to describe, especially for someone who isn’t that familiar with Oolongs. I however will do my best.
It is a very smooth, mellow but confident flavor. Nothing shoots right up at your taste buds to indicate there may be an underlying spice attached to it. Sightly smokey. but not a strong smokiness. It’s a comforting tea. And according to Emeric Harney you can get about 9 infusions out of it. Which is always good to know.

Ooooh! I don’t even see it on the site – it must be brand spankin’ new! What does it taste like? Is cassia cinnamon?

New apartment. First pot of tea with my roommate’s electric kettle. I probably shouldn’t have made green tea with it, only because i cannot control the temperature of the water. I think i ‘burnt’ this tea. But thankfully due to the smokiness of it, it didn’t taste completely off…

I want a temp control kettle so badly…
