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

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
