Steep 1: 2:30 Minutes Toasty Roasty Oolong with a lovely sweet brown sugar, caramelized sugar, brown sugar flavor. Delicious and intriguing!

I had this when I first began drinking loose leaf and do not recall enjoying it quite so much. Now I appreciate all the elements in this tea!

The leaves in this tea are SO huge and expand SO large that you really need quite the large brew basket for them or just put them in your pot or cup and strain them.

You can really smell the vegetal roasted oolong in this blend and the flavors do not over take the aroma or flavor of this very nice oolong.

Steep 2: 3:00 Minutes – I concur with others who have said that the sugar comes out more prominent in this steep, yet there is a wet leaves earthy flavor there as well. It has not lost the toasty element and a nutty flavor is present as well. These remind me quite a bit of those caramelized nuts you can get at fairs and in the mall.

I probably won’t have time to continue logging this but if I do I will come back and add to my notes here but this is really quite lovely.

They have this tea along with coconut pouchong which I ADORE on Open Sky for sale 28 for both. I may have to grab some one of these days if they don’t sell out.

This was one of my first loose leaf teas as well. I knew nothing about loose tea back then. I fixed this in a tea ball. I liked it a lot but didn’t know how to really appreciate it.

Exactly. Its still not the best tea in the world or anything but now that I know how to brew it properly it is MUCH better. Haha of course the tea isn’t better – I am but it makes for a much better brew to know what one is doing :)

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
