488 Tasting Notes
The vanilla flavour is quite strong- reminds me of the vanilla flavouring in yogurt. The vanilla overpowers the oolong, especially in the aftertaste. The oolong seems to have been over-infused or infused at too hot a temperature. I may want to try brewing this again for less time or at a lower temperature.
The dry leaf smells incredible.
The brewed tea is leathery but sweet- reminiscent of chamomile-like sweetness. There’s a bit of the characteristic pu’er note but it is very well balanced with the overall flavour. The flavour is not at all bold. I would definitely try experimenting with different infusion times.
Good thick mouth-feel. I’m surprised by this considering how mild the flavour is.
