3 Tasting Notes


As this tea is quite a dark/strongly fermented tea, I wondered what might happen if I added a little soy milk to it……
YUM. The sweet taste with the creaminess was amazing, so I made up a fresh cup, this time doubling the tea strength and mixing pretty much half and half with the milk, and I think I have a new favourite drink.

I absolutely adore this tea, bought on a whim to experiment with flavoured oolongs from a tiny shop in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
To me, it tastes simultaneously crisp and sweet, and the longer it’s steeped the more intense the sweetness and richness is. I’ve re-brewed the leaves up to three times and gotten a great flavour each time, but after that I find it loses it’s richness.

I’ve yet to experiment much with the steeping time (I brew most black teas for 3 minutes so that’s what I went with), and it brews so strong! Yummy and so very warming, but a little bit ‘heavy tasting’. This might be because it’s such a finely chopped tea, it’s almost like a dust.
Super-strength besides, it has a smooth and rich taste, no bitterness at all.

I’m an old soul in a 19 year-old body and have been a tea-devotee all my life. I grew up in a household that ran on quirky little superstitions around tea and how it was made, and as I grew up I started to learn more about the history of tea and tea making and found a little world of knowledge that I love.
I’m constantly looking to try new teas and blends; my favourite variety of teas are lightly fermented oolongs but I love everything from straight up black tea to herbal and floral tisanes.
I’m a major nerd when it comes to history and I’m majoring my studies around ethnobotany; the study of relationships between different cultural groups and their uses of plants. It’s a big ambition for me to one day travel and learn more about tea and it’s history in different cultures.
Just for now though, I have to rein in my obsession with building up my tea collection and mad rants over steeping times with my family.
