From my review on Reddit:
“I’m going to try and finish my tasting of my Eco-Cha teas today so I know what to reorder. So far I’ve decided to reorder the Concubine Oolong. The Concubine Oolong is amazing grandpa style, by the way.

Based on my love for the Concubine Oolong and ShanLinXi oolongs in general, I cracked open the ShanLinXi oolong bag today. The dry leaf is incredibly sweet, with some butter and sweet vegetables going on. Maybe sweet potato or summer squash? Either way, this smells DELICIOUS. The liquor smells buttery and fruity, as do the wet leaves.

This tastes very floral. Floral the entire time. It’s also quite sweet and buttery. This is a complex tea, the flavor profile evolves in your mouth. From floral to buttery to sweet to pine needles. All of these flavors work together and create a nice, balanced, easy-going flavor profile. This is a shining example of high-mountain oolong, this is probably the tea I’d reach for if I was introducing someone to this type of tea."
