This was not the best choice for trying out my new earthenware gaiwan. Next time I’ll stick to the large-leafed straight oolongs and greens.

Other than a surfeit of detritus from the brewing method, I still love this tea. I prefer citrus flavours over mint, but the mint doesn’t take over this tea. It’s a very clean and refreshing taste, leaving a tingly lemony-fresh taste in your mouth afterwards. Unfortunately, the lemon and mint do overwhelm the natural floral taste of the oolong, and after spending some quality time with straight oolongs I do miss it.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
