807 tasting notes

This is a very light oolong. I normally prefer the darker oolong but yet it has such a rich buttery flavor and I LOVE butter so I am enjoying this cup.
It has a very silken like mouthfeel. Of course creamy, and somewhat full, but its just so smooth that it makes me think of velvet, silk, something like that as it slides gently down the throat. Not drying more juicy.
There is a light vegetal flavor and a savory note that is coming through much like sesame – I have had sesame on the brain lately though.
The after taste is lovely. I am not sure I can do the tea justice in explaining it but something of a rock mineral sort of cleansing note.
It makes me feel fresh lol.
As for floral – I don’t know if it is floral as one would expect – it does not have any specific floral flavor but you know how I just said it made me feel fresh? I think that the flavor – the after taste I am getting is the way a bouquet of fresh flowers SMELLS! YES in fact its like when you get one of those really fancy salads with orchis on it … yup that is it – ORCHID!
Whew glad I got that figured out lol
This is a nice tea and the more I sit here enjoying it while writing this review the more I am appreciating it!
I am sorry Wen Shan Bao Zhong! I have kept you hidden away for far too long.
I don’t know what I was thinking.
You are yummy!

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.
