This tea is light, sweet and refreshing. I have found that I tend to overbrew oolongs and get a rather rubbery taste, but this one seems to be more forgiving. It has that honeysuckle sweetness that can replace cakes and puddings for me, while not being as strong and cloying as some of the sweeter teas can get. There is a decent level of depth to the flavour, although I am struggling to work out just what I am tasting. It’s floral and sweet and leaves a leaves a lovely honey sweetness in the mouth afterwards. Although it does not blow me away completely, this is a tea to return to whenever the mood takes.

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
