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!
A lovely straight forward Indian tea! There is not a ton of complexity here but it is very good quality! There is a nice difference here between your typical Indian Black so you should give it a try – especially if you love Indian black teas!
This one has a nice twang note within it – plucky like.
Slight black pepper flavor as well but very subtle and could easily be missed!

A lovely white chocolate flavor which is very distinguishable!
Creamy and sweet but not cloying! A very nice blend!
Perfect for a cool day!
This tea is also excellent when cooled as well!
Longer Review will be forthcoming on http://sororiteasisters.com/
I needed a good – no – a GREAT kick in the rear this morning as I got up FAR earlier than I usually do and I have no idea why. Its cool and the wind is crazy today – leaves falling – perfect cuddle up and sleep all day type of day. HOWEVER I grabbed this sample from LiberTEAS and thank goodness this is a strong bold cup! Exactly what I needed!
Malty, oatmeal aroma, some strange fruit notes. When I wake up I will be doing a full review on http://sororiteasisters.com/
Call me crazy – and I have not yet taken a sip but this tea smells like chocolate when stepped! LOL yeah I know that seems odd.
I love the look of the leaf – reminds me of pea pods!
I also smell a creamy aroma. YUMMM can’t wait for it to cool enough to drink!
I should be sleeping – but I’m not.
So first sip – very light – light vegetal flavors, buttery, and rock mineral? What the??? Its not an oolong but yet there is this fresh rock mineral flavor I am getting. Interesting!
A little salty, and a cooling sensation yet not minty flavored.
Very interesting indeed.
I will play around with this one a bit to see what else I can get from it with resteeps and perhaps different brewing methods.
So far I am intrigued!
A WONDERFUL pu-erh for beginners!! I love it and I would not say I am a “beginner” although I have so much more to explore in the world of pu-erh. I just am one who already loves pu-erh. This however is one that needs to be tried if you are timid about pu-erh.
The flavors are so well blended and the other ingredients do not take over the wonderful pu-erh notes yet the notes are probably only strong enough for a true pu-erh drinker to notice at first.
Fruity and delicious with notes of peat, oak moss, and so much more!
Oh and its creamy too!
