Hmm… I’m not certain what to make of this tea. First, let me say that I’m discovering I really love oolong. So, having had a few different silk oolongs, I was really expecting to have my socks knocked off… well, I didn’t. That’s not to say that it’s not a bad cup of tea. It’s simply that I had hoped for more.

First, the scent. I was a bit wary as I’m normally enticed by the aroma of the open bag. That didn’t happen this time. When I opened the bag and sniffed, I actually recoiled because it was so different from what I was expecting.

Okay, so I went with 195/2min steep using the Breville. The color was kind of a light yellow. Lighter than I expected, but I decided to give it a go. Mmm. It is good. I can smell that silk oolong scent that I had been hoping for earlier. It’s very nice, but doesn’t have that creamy heft to it that other silk oolongs seem to have. It does taste creamy, though, but with more earthiness to it. It’s interesting. I’m happy with it, but surprised by the experience all the same.
