I am going to a party tonight so more caffeine is ok for the time being. :)

This came as a free sample with the last Dong Ding oolong I got from Naivetea. I have been very impressed with the consistent quality and deliciousness across their product line. There is a clean and bright quality that is captured so well.

I am a fan of some of the darker roasted oolongs. When these tea leaves are wet they smell like burnt caramel and toast. There is a sweetness here and a smoothness that is quite delightful. I am wondering how mere water is transformed into such deliciousness!

After 4 steeps the tea shows no signs of losing its flavor and just seems to keep getting sweeter and more candy like. I do not think I like it quite as well as the Dong Ding (which got 100 from me) but it is still rather spectacular.

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
