This is one of those teas that I would build a special underground bunker for if its existence were ever threatened. When I got this in a swap from the sorely missed Quiltguppy I had to have it, and I ordered a LOT of it.
When drinking it by itself it tastes like buttered popcorn, heavy on the butter. Last night, my son and I had it with Asian buffet takeout and it. was. heavenly. I had it again today with leftovers and it was every bit as good. I even drank some of it cold and it was still amazing.
I wish I knew exactly what it was. They call it a green but it really has to be an oolong. It HAS to be. Just look at it. But what kind? I called the company and they told me that oolongs were roasty and when I told them that they can be roasty toasty or green, the clerk said she hadn’t heard of that and really needed to learn more. Sigh. So I have never found out.
If I ever was challenged to win someone over to green (or oolong) tea in just one try, this would probably be the one I would pick to do that.
