Our second pot of tea after Thanksgiving dinner, this is also thanks to Quiltguppy! :)
This is my daughter’s first oolong. Our Silky Green was buttery and sweet. This one was a nice contrast, so she won’t get the idea that teas are all alike. The aroma is roasty on top of floral, and there is a slight astringency at the end of the sip. I do detect the mineral quality mentioned in other reviews, something I enjoy in my puerhs. This is good, and honestly it took a full cup efore the astringency was really noticeable.
The second infusion has picked up a vanilla overtone and the astringency has decreased. This is a lovely, woodsy, nutty, and floral all in one tea. Thank you, QG!
