drank High Mountain Oolong by Unknown
225 tasting notes

I received this in a swap on r/teaexchange. I don’t know anything about it besides that it is a high mountain oolong.

I didn’t get much time for tea yesterday, as my boyfriend is sick, and I had to go take care of him at his apartment. It’ll probably be about the same today, so I’m getting this one in before I go over.

This is a really nice golden color. I’m still not really good at picking out scents and flavors in unflavored teas, but I’m working on it. I would say there is a vegetal smell, with a hint of something roasted. With the first sip of this, it is definitely sweet. Sweet, smooth, and creamy, though a little weak. Perhaps resteepings can fix that. There is a vegetal flavor in the aftertaste.

I wish I had someone nearby who could be my tea mentor. We could taste different teas, and they could show me what all these different flavors are. Right now, I feel like I still don’t know what I’m talking about. Though, I guess the only way to fix that is to drink even more tea!

Yep. That is what I found. The best way to become more knowledgeable about tea is to drink more! And research to find facts about the tea you drink.

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
