I cold brewed this is the refrigerator overnight and it is absolutely divine! Buttery lilac nirvana! Upping the rating a tad. :-)

I told you cold brewing oolongs brews out the flavor…

TeaBrat

you were right! It was good when it was hot but even better this way!

ScottTeaMan

Amy, since you’re not over excited about scented teas…….did you brew the hot tea differently than before, so that this may have strengthened your opinion? Or was it the tea?

TeaBrat

I don’t know if I can explain it. The floral here is mild. It is just enough but not “too much” for me!

TeaBrat

@Scott, also to my knowledge this is not a “scented” tea meaning this is a natural flavor, but who knows…

ScottTeaMan

Correct. “Scented” was the wrong term. Jades are greener and floral in nature. Before this post, I read your post about the Magnolia Oolong, which tend to be scented…….like Jasmine teas. :))

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

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

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
