I almost hate to say it, but this tea is delicious. It’s like a cross between a Tie Guan Yin and a milk oolong. It has a creamy, floral, ever-so-slightly vegetal quality. It’s almost as creamy as a milk oolong, but it doesn’t taste buttery or milky. Very smooth and flavorful, and it holds up through multiple infusions. It has sort of a clear, pure quality. Definitely worth checking out if you enjoy green oolongs. I’m going to repurchase it.

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
