Sitting here while it steeps, I think this is one of the best smelling oolongs I’ve experienced. Smells like hot springs, with some floral and roasty notes.

Drinking it – The mineral like scent comes through at the forefront on taste. It is a little floral tasting for me as well, but different from other oolongs, which usually give me kind of a lavenderesque taste. Tastes a little bit like roasted nuts too now that I think of it. On the second steep some flan like flavors are starting to come through, and the floral notes are lessening.

Very nice!

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.
