thanks to JustJames for sharing this Oolong with me.

I am a fan of Oolongs and I love this one as basis for the maple pecan Oolong tea.Drinking it as a plain tea I am a little less seduced.

It’s a fruity Oolong, mellow as Oolong are often and for the best but there is an aftertaste I am not very fond of.
This is a very correct tea but it is not for me I think because of that aftertaste which is less sweet than the first sip.I can get a very light but long touch of acridness at the end of the sip and I think this is the point for me.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 0 sec

you didn’t get ice, huh? i didn’t get any acidity…. wonder what i did differently. did i send enough for another cup? of course, if it just is not your thing pass it along to someone else =0)

Ysaurella

I made a second steep with and I get the same very very light acridness (not acidity). I think this is not my thing even if I have drank all my cups with pleasure. I see what you meant with “ice taste” I think I get it.

i would agree… i like the novelty of it. a tea that tastes like ice!!! but i probably won’t repurchase.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
