The big dark leaves in the bag are looking pretty enticing. Taste is what I’d expect out of a good oolong: minerally (especially on the second steep), nutty, a little roasty, but it has also got some fresh mixed herb-like notes that differentiate it from some of the other oolongs I’ve tried recently. Easy to drink, no harshness, and a good price last time I checked. I like it.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
