180 Tasting Notes
This is my first oolong, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s very mellow. Soft and sweet. I’m getting just a bit of the fruity flavor, and the flavor of the tea is fairly delicate.
That being said, I don’t know that I paid as much attention as I should have to the steeping, as I was dealing with the fact that I just found out the doughnut I had been looking forward to eating had been… nibbled. Darn cat.
My first early morning cup in quite some time… Had to cut back on caffeine for awhile. I got up, filled the kettle, sat down and waited for the whistle. And waited. And waited.
You know what helps the kettle boil? Turning on the burner. Yeah… this cup couldn’t have come soon enough.
Now this one I really forgot I had. It was unopened in the back of my cupboard. It was one of my first loose teas… it came with the Adagio IngenuiTEA herbal sampler gift set that was my introduction to the world of loose leaf tea. I bought another packet for iced tea for the summer… and promptly forgot about it.
I’m not a big fan of hot fruity teas, but I was in the mood for something different tonight. It tastes like… warm orange juice. Which isn’t great. This rating is mostly for the iced version.
