This is a wonderful and unique Oolong – Unique because it’s from Indonesia and this is my first time sampling an Oolong from Indonesia (at least, I believe so). It is also unique in aroma – very fruity and floral, it almost smells as though it has been flavored or at least scented with fruit as the aroma is so strong. The brewed tea has a softer fruit and flower fragrance with a vegetative overtone.

The flavor is smooth and vegetal while at the same time, it is sharp and floral. The fruit tones do not emerge until later infusions. The vegetative flavors are earthy and herbal, with an herbaceous tone that lingers in the aftertaste. A strong astringency at the start which tapers off as I continue to sip, and in subsequent infusions it continues to wane.

A remarkable Oolong, I’m so thrilled I had this opportunity to try it.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
