So folks… it’s an oolong. Yeah, that’s right. Stacy was kind enough to include this as a sample for me with my last order even though she knows I am not a fan of the green oolongs (I asked, so she complied!). I haven’t yet gone through any re-steepings of this but holy this is actually kind of tasty. I’m brewing this western style to make life easier for me. I can’t even begin to describe what i’m tasting. There are no floral notes..it’s sweet…and not vegetal at all.

I have to say stacy…this one’s kinda good (for an oolong grin) Looking forward to a few re-steeps on this one. I’d probably even go so far as to say id keep this around in my cupboard for my friends who enjoy a good oolong, because i would drink it from time to time :)

CrowKettle

That’s an extremely high recommendation then ;) I’m so glad you sort of liked this one!

Sil

crowkettle…yeah this might be my fav green oolong so far. I much prefer darker oolongs :)

Butiki Teas

Hahaha, I’m taking this as an extremely high review. I didn’t think you would like this one.

Sil

Went through maybe 4? Re-steeps last night an drank all of thm! :)

Kittenna

I wouldn’t have thought she’d like it either, haha.

Sil

It doesn’t have that weird oolongy taste that makes me not happy. I need to figure out what it is. Blech. Doesn’t smell like it either. Maybe when you come over kittenna you can identify it and why/which oolongs have it haha

Indigobloom

oh my Sil likes an Oolong?? I wish I knew what it is specifically that you dislike in them lol

Sil

IB – we can figure that out when you guys come over. I’m sure i have some in my house i don’t like lol. there’s a specific taste/smell that the ones i don’t like have that just makes my face curl. dark oolongs don’t have it..and this is the first greeny oolong that doesn’t have it.

Indigobloom

Good plan! Do some green teas have it?

Butiki Teas

Hmmm, I wonder if its the floral notes that are the issue.

Sil

Yeah….. I dunno. Oolongs don’t taste floral to me like say rose, jasmine….that sort of thing. I’m hoping the girls can help me figure it out since I know I have some oolong in the house I can make them drink and say THiS! This smell and taste! Lol

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
