I woke up this morning with a thirst for some oolong. This happens about once or twice a week. I grabbed one of those sample pouches that are patiently awaiting my attention. This one’s got a real caffeine kick to it. But I’m pretty sensitive to that stuff so most people probably won’t even notice it. hehe
This is a perfectly good oolong that I didn’t really like. I thought it tasted perfectly ordinary and a little roasty. There was some sweetness in the peachy tones, but other than that, it seemed pretty boring. The quality was good, don’t mistake me. It’s just not my thing. I didn’t make more than 2 steeps when I usually make at least four with oolongs. I’m glad it was only a sample.
PS Does anyone else find that oolongs lose flavor if stored for a while? There are ones that tasted so floral and nummy. But when I go back to it a few months later, it’s kinda ordinary. Is it oxidation? I know my tins and bags aren’t exactly air tight… Sometimes I just buy too much because the larger quantities are usually a better deal. Maybe it’s not worth it if it makes my tea taste less good later.
