This smells like green beans with a couple crushed roasted peanuts on top, next to a bouquet of flowers. A dark kind of dark vegetal mixed with a raosted note, and a floral finish. The leaves are tightly rolled dark and light green, gnarled knobby little things. The wet leaf smells more floral, and after the first steep the leaves are still wrinked but not longer balls. The second steep the leaves expand and smooth out more, and by the third steep they’re fully unfurled.

This is on the more savory side of the oolong spectrum.It’s roasty, but not in your face roasty (like the actual peanuts and not the peanut skins). Its that sort of floral thats that I always have a hard time defining. For some reason I want to say peach blossoms (is that even a thing?), or orchids. And in the background is darkly vegetal, like green beans, and buttery, both in taste and texture. Its a fancy cold green bean salad, with a orchid and peach blossom infused butter sauce drizzled on top, and sprinkled with crushed peanuts. Its different, it’s hard to describe, but still you want more.

Peach blossoms? Why not? Sounds good to me…It’s YOUR review, you can say what you want :-)

The words kept popping in my head, but when I kept trying to figure out why I thought of peach blossoms, I couldn’t come up with anything. Also apparently peach blossoms are some kind of crunchy peanut butter treat? http://www.necco.com/Candy/Peach-Blossoms.aspx But that’s definitely not what I meant by peach blossoms, haha.

Haha! No worries, I’ve said “peach blossoms” many times…to me, it’s a mix of floral and peach, I totally understand :-)

I’m also starting to drift away from flavored teas, but still like a good dessert tea every once in awhile.
I will always love a good chai.
I despise licorice and bacon.

Cocoa, Bread, Caramel,
