I have always been a big fan of Oolong tea, but, I like some better than others. I didn’t expect to really like this one as much as I do, because it’s a darker Oolong, and most of the darker Oolong teas that I favor tend to be the Formosa Oolong teas. But this one really surprised me.

It is surprisingly light … and yet rich. It starts out very light, and as the sip progresses the flavor develops, starting out with sweet, subtle fruit notes and then slowly changing to a more roasted, even a charcoal-ish type of taste toward the tail of the sip. There are pleasant nutty tones toward mid-sip, and an undercurrent of honey-esque sweetness throughout.

Very nice, it reminds me of fall, when the weather starts to change and you can smell the aroma of wood and smoke coming out of the chimneys and filling the cool, crisp air. Then again, it could be that I’m just longing for autumn that everything is reminding me of my favorite season.

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.
