This was definitely a unique oolong as far as background goes. Can’t say it differs much from the oolong milieu in taste and presentation. I will give it this, though, it delivers on its promised floral notes and has an inherent creaminess that reminds me of osthmanthus-scented teas. Even at a two-minute steep, it embittered a bit. For future attempts, I might go with a lighter temperature to see what I end up with. A decent cup, just not the best.

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
