I bought this one almost a year ago when I first started getting into tea because it was super highly reviewed over on Teaviews and someone called it like a “condensed milk” oolong. Well I had no idea what that meant and made some expecting something VERY different and was highly disappointed. After that I steered clear of oolongs.
I decided to revisit this tea now that I know a little more about tea and my expectations were much more in line.
I’m really glad I did. This tea is crazy good. I’m not going to get into my steeping play by play, but each additional one (4 in total) yielded a super buttery, creamy, almost roasty, treat. I would compare the butter flavor to that of snyder’s butter pretzels. And that’s a good thing. I could drink this all day. Especially when I’m craving a butter. The price tag is a bit stiff, but considering how much tea you get out of one or two teaspoons, it’s worth it (I tell myself….)
