Thanks for the sample, Heather!

I’m not the hugest fan of green oolongs, and this isn’t really an exception. The leaves smell green and somewhat roasty, with a hint of mineral.

Steeped (I used 2 tsp in 16 oz), it smells sweet and a little floral, reminiscent of the ocean sand. I could swear there’s jasmine in here, just a hint.

It’s really different. I can’t say I really like it, but the fact that it’s not the same as other green oolongs I’ve tried is nice. The flavours are more “me”. While there’s a mineral aspect, it doesn’t taste like seaweed. It reminds me more of a nice jasmine green than anything, only with WAY less jasmine.

Not bad.

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
