drank Da Hong Pao by Harney & Sons
1813 tasting notes

I have been wanting a nice oolong ever since my last trip to Teavana where I tasted a very nice sample they were serving. I pulled this one out today not even remembering what it tasted like, it has been so long since I had it!

There is a mineral quality that reminds me of a puerh, though the flavor does not. It is sweet and mellow, but not weak. It has great body and is really lovely. Today has been a bit challenging with the radiation burns plaguing me. This oolong helped soothe my tense body – I drank a whole 18 ounce pot of it. I plan to resteep these leaves, too. I need some additional mellowing! :)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
