When I first opened the sample of this tea, all I could smell were Peach notes. The leaves are green, curled with hints of yellow. I brewed this tea western style instead of via gaiwan. As the leaves steeped, they opened and produced a peachy, creamy aroma. The liquid is a beautiful golden yellow colour. Now, as some may know, green oolongs are not my favourite. However, I continue to try various teas to expand my tea palate and experience new things, so that was part of the reason of the reason for picking up this tea.

As I continue to sip on this tea, and as i go through the re-steeps, the flavour moves from a creamy, peachy type flavour to a more vegetal floral taste. There is no perfumey harshness to this tea, but it is still too floral for my liking, particularly as you move through the re-steeps.

Overall not something that I enjoy but a reasonable enough tea for me to have tried. I’m sure others will enjoy it much more than me.

I’m sure if you put the rest up for swap, someone would nab it quickly ;) I liked it well enough!

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.
