This tea came to me courtesy of Quiltguppy! I have been looking forward to trying these oolongs, but oolongs are a tea that I like to drink when I have a little time to pay attention, stop and smell the aromas, and sit quietly with the cup…even if just for a few minutes. I just can’t rush oolongs!
This oolong does not disappoint. Though one review said it was scented with osmanthus, I don’t get strong floral flavor, so it is not an artificial taste to me. I am not terribly familiar with osmanthus, though. Even though the tea is a medium-light color, it has plenty of taste and heft. There is the slightest dry tingle on my tongue, so astringency is very light. It has warm, nutty tones.
This is a delightful oolong! Thank you, QG!
