For this afternoon I decided to dig into my High Mountain Oolong that I got last week. During my first tasting I couldn’t rate it because I wasn’t sure how I feel about it. I liked it but it wasn’t the over the heels love from the first sight (or taste… lol).
I steeped it at 94C for 5 min.
This tea intrigues me. I don’t know what it is, I can’t put my finger on it. The taste is slightly vegetal and buttery although different than the green tea… different vegetable perhaps? I detect mild and very pleasant astringency at the back of my tongue. There is something else though… Underneath it all I taste and smell something sweet… and floral, and that really intrigues me because I’m not sure what it is. When I close my eyes I see flowers in the wooded area after a pouring rain…
Overall this is a very delicious tea. I enjoy it a lot. What I don’t enjoy is the price. From time to time though this will be a lovely treat. :)
