Thank you LiberTEAS for this sample!

As previously mentioned, the leaves are slightly flatter than expected and not as tightly rolled, which seems to encourage the leaves to unfurl slightly faster. The quality of the liquid seems to make this a moot point, as it is produces a nice relaxing cuppa tea.

As many of the Milk Oolongs, there is plenty of the prominent floral and fruity notes, of which this particular one brings a very good balance of both. It seems to be a nice choice for one that is non-interested in a stronger fruity flavor.

There is a small amount of astringency, but not overbearingly bitter. I found this tea to work well shortly after breakfast, as this seemed to compliment my meal and smooth my palate.

The color in the cup is more of a melon to tangerine, but changes quickly to a darker persimmon juice visual. This doesn’t seem to change the taste and is still enjoyable, even if you aren’t able to finish the cup immediately.

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
