I had this at Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon
http://amazonv.blogspot.com/2011/06/lady-mendls-tea-salon-place-review.html

Steep Information:
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes (per the waiter)
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Steeped Tea Smell: Vegetal, floral, toasty
Flavor: Nutty, toasty
Body: Light
Aftertaste: Toasty
Liquor: Translucent pale green (not: lighting was candle light)

I think it needed to steep longer.

Second cup I added the sugar cube, the tea was overpowered.

Third cup I added a piece of candied ginger, which made no difference.

Fourth cup over the same piece of ginger brought a tang that went well with the toasty vegetal oolong.

I drank two pots of Wood Dragon Oolong through the five courses.

I purchased some to bring home, I think it was a nice light oolong.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
