My bowl of Matcha disappeared fast!

I haven’t had any Oolong tea lately, and I’ve missed it. And this is an excellent Oolong!

Very nice, natural honey-like essence to it that presents itself in the aroma as well as the flavor. Happily, I can taste the floral notes of this tea – One of the things that had kept me from drinking too many of my favorite teas now while I’m sick is the fact that I was worried that in their impaired state my taste buds would not pick up on the more delicate features of those teas. Not so with this particular cup. A lovely floral flavor that melds so well with the natural sweetness. Slightly woodsy. Even a hint of buttery flavor.

YUM!

It is so comforting and delicious. Just what I needed this afternoon.

My review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog recently published, wanna check it out? Here it is:

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 15 sec
Cofftea

That’s the one thing I don’t like about koicha or usucha- not much liquid so it disappears fast:(

The second infusion of this tea is even better than the first. Sweeter, smoother, and the mouthfeel is even more pleasant – slightly thicker and richer in buttery flavor.

I managed four very flavorful infusions from this tea… I probably could have managed a fifth but I think that I’m ready to move on to something different.

So far, all of the oolongs I have sampled have been VERY SUBTLE. Is this the case w/this one as well? Or is the flavor bolder than typical?

TeaEqualsBliss

OH! So YOU started the Honeybee trend! :P

LiberTEAS

@Lori: Oolong, typically, is not going to be as bold as a black tea, but, it is a bit less subtle than a green tea. This one isn’t “bold” but the honey flavor is not what I would call subtle either.
@TeaEqualsBliss – I guess so! LOL

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!
