This is a lovely tea. I used my whole sample packet and steeped for one minute.

The wet leaves smell creamy and rich. The taste is at first very floral, and becomes more vegetal as the cup cools. The creamy sweetness appears almost immediately, and is on the front of the sip, not the end as some other Oolongs I’ve tasted are. The creaminess dissipates, or is less noticeable, as the vegetal notes become more prominent. As far as vegetal taste, this tastes more spinach-y than grassy. Aftertaste is sweet, like I just ate fresh garden peas and perhaps some flowers. :)

This resteeps well too. I would recommend this to those who enjoy floral, vegetal, creamy tea. If you are looking for a roasted oolong, this is not it! :)

Thanks again to Angel and Teavivre for this delicious sample!

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
