Trying to drink some more of my samples – wish me luck. :D

I received this mysterious oolong from Indigobloom – hmm. What kind of an oolong is it and where does it come from? It looks to be a tieguanyin of some sort. I guess we’ll never know…

For an inexpensive price, this is a decent cup of tea. smells fresh and aromatic after steeping. I got a yellowish tea liquor that seems a bit nutty, also with a floral element.

Second steep is similar to the first. I am getting a whiff of an aroma which makes me think this tea is partially roasted. I am picking up a bit of peachy element in here. It’s fairly pleasant overall but seems to be missing that WOW factor that I am always looking for in an oolong.

I think I’ll try cold brewing the rest of it overnight to see what happens. Thanks for the sample, IB! I appreciate you sharing with me.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
