This dry tea smells creamy, sweet and spicey at the same time.

The initial taste of the hot tea is a gently sweet green oolong with a slight spice to it. Like a vegetal spice, think chewing on the leaves of raspberries or radishes. The oolong tastes smooth, creamy and vegetal. It is very light, not too strong. As it starts too cool the sweetness and spicy-ness blend very well together. I would not necessarily say I taste strawberry, but there is that sweetness there that slightly mimics a ripe strawberry. I kept the infusion to my usual 2 minutes so it didn’t get too strong, but I am going to try a bit longer next time. I normally don’t like the taste of plain green oolongs but I could definitely drink this one over and over.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
