Thus far Dan Congs are the only non-green oolongs that I enjoy. I think green oolongs are still my favorite by just a little, but sometimes I really just want a delicious cup of Mi Lan Dan Cong. I made a cup of this and put it by my side to cool a bit before drinking. I kept catching whiffs of sweet honey and fruity lychee. numnumnum. The first sip was amaaaazing. That first sip of hot tea in the morning really warms your belly. :)

I think I may have made this a bit too strong. but it’s still tasty, just intense. It tastes autumnal to me, though lychees are in season in the summer. I think most dark oolongs have that autumnal flavor and I really like my teas to be more light and springy feeling. The natural honey and lychee flavors really make this tea and exception though. So good.

Now I want lychees. Can’t wait for summer fruits to start rolling in! Mmmm…berries and peaches…

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
