I’m confused. I haven’t drank much oolong but I thought they were supposed to be fruity and floral. I love the Butikiteas.com Peach Oolong. It couldn’t be any fruitier and flowery. But this one is very smoky and tastes mostly like a black tea. The scent reminded me slightly of unspiced raw pumpkin. The flavor reminds me oddly enough of the other Choice tea I’ve tried – Russian Caravan, a pine smoked black tea, which I don’t think should taste the same. I’m pretty disappointed in this one since I expected fruity and floral, but maybe I’ve already tried the best oolong (The Butiki)?

Well, some oolongs are fruity and floral. So are some greens and whites, and even blacks. A peach oolong will definitely be fruity because it is flavored as such. This is an unflavored oolong. Flavors of the oolong tea itself, depending on the type, range from light, crisp, and clean like baozongs and pouchongs to much darker and roasty like an Ali Shan. Like any other type of tea, not all oolongs taste the same.

ah, okay. I will no longer assume a certain kind of tea tastes like every other. :D

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
