I’ve been lacking in some of my updates..I got this quite awhile ago from Chinese Tea Shop as a sample. It arrived very, very quickly! I got this package before I got some of the ones I was expecting from in the states.
This is my first infusion of this tea. I used lower temp. water for a lower time. I’m a bit unfamiliar with oolong steeping; so this may have been a strange guess on that aspect.
This was my first excursion into Iron Goddess teas. The leaves were just beautiful. I have a certain love of oolong leaves and this one was just nice to watch.
The liquor is this beautiful yellow/gold color.
The flavor is so smooth and relaxing. I can taste very slight floral notes. I can’t quite explain what they are though! Shame on my young palate. :p But there is this distinct almost, hm, buttery note to it. It is very pleasant. There are some vegetal notes but they aren’t overpowering or unpleasant in the least. This blend gets high points for me because none of the leaves’ smell is lost in the liquor. That subtle floral aroma stays with it.
I highly recommend this tea; especially for people like me who are new to unflavored oolongs. It really is a nice oolong!
