Today’s Oolong was sent to me by Doulton Thank you so very much! How I love Oolong!

The dry leaves are very long and dark, much longer than most Oolong teas that I’ve encountered. The aroma is floral and fruity.

The fragrance of the tea is a little earthy, a little flowery, and a bit fruity – almost like a plum, or perhaps a bowl of peaches and plums.

The flavor – I am picking up a little smokiness in the flavor. It is a rather soft, smooth note of smoke – not quite as bold as say a “red robe” Oolong. It’s more like the peaches and plums were smoked.

It is a very smooth tasting Oolong with a pleasant mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is not quite as thick as a green Oolong. The peachy notes linger in the aftertaste. And a very nice floral note that hits you as you continue to sip the tea.

A very pleasant Oolong!

Infusing these leaves a second time. The dry leaves are very dark, but upon brewing, they reveal themselves to be green. The second infusion is, interestingly enough much more like a greener Oolong, as well. Not so much of a smoky taste to it now, much more floral, still a bit fruity, and a slightly leafy flavor. Not really grassy, but, a very faint vegetative essence.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
