I dug a sample packet of this tea out of my cupboard just now; I’m honestly not sure when or from whom I got it. Hmm.

It an interesting tea that starts out with a floral flavour when the tea is hotter and then as it gets a bit cooler it takes on a deeper, and more well-rounded flavour. The floral notes fade and the tea takes on a sweetly buttery flavour. The feel of the tea in my mouth is very smooth and pleasent. As the tea cools some more the floral notes come back slightly along with a honey-like sweet flavour.

The resteep (@ 5 min) is less floral and has more of that honey flavour. It was an enjoyable oolong and I liked that it wasn’t as flowery as some other green oolongs can be.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
