I have Geoffrey Norman to thank for sending me this tea. Thanks!

This tea confuses me! The appearance of the dry leaves remind me of a Formosa Oolong, and even the brewed liquor smells like a Formosa Oolong. And it tastes more like an Oolong to me than a typical Keemun.

Nevertheless, I am liking it! It has a warm taste to it – not just temperature, but a subtle spicy undertone – and a pleasant smoothness. No bitter taste and very little (as in practically no) astringency. A very pleasant cup.

I think I want to try this one again before I start rating it.

Agreed, it has a more Formosan oolong feel to it.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
