160 Tasting Notes
This is a quite floral smelling and tasting oolong on the first steep (in a good way). On the second steep it balances out more with earthy/minerally notes. I originally only intended to have one mug of this while watching a movie, but I was enjoying it and drinking it down so fast, I kept pausing the movie to go make more. Has a creamy mouthfeel. I bought more of this 2 years after the initial review and it has some scents that remind me of cinnamon kind of.
I drank this with a smorgasbord of Korean and Vietnamese food tonight, which was a nice pairing with the tea. Smell and taste reminds me of mineral/hot rock, which is something I always enjoy in oolong teas. It looks to be priced decently, so I’d probably order it again. Later steepings are bringing out some misc. herb-like notes.
I brewed this western style. My experience so far is it’s mostly floral smelling and tasting, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Some nice, mild vegetal notes. This was just a sample size, but I’ll probably order more in the future. A balanced, good all around tea.
