What, what?! This is an oolong? Well fancy that. The second oolong that I’ve had where I’ve yet to notice (up until recently, all oolongs made me violently ill within minutes).

I opened the pouch to share with someone who asked for a taste, and though I should try it myself. Very light color (I wondered if I should steep it longer), smells like pea shoots to me. Very clean and fresh. Tiny bit of dryness at the end of the sip, bright peachy/stone fruit notes, and a delicate jasmine scent and flavor. I’m really enjoying this!

Flavors: Peach, Peas

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I have to be careful with oolongs (especially the green ones) & green teas, because if I haven’t eaten recently they will make me sick.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
