Increasing rating! I really like this! A little more malty-smooth than I remember.

Backlogging a cup! Also DH had a cup and said he really liked this one – said it was bold and he always adds sugar to his teas when he does have tea that is…

Randomly chose this from my home stash tonight and realized my SororiTEA Sister also had a cup of this as well! :) Ironic! LOL This is better than I remember it…I did infuse more loose leaf but for less time and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

My water is a little cooler than unusual but the leaves seem to be fluffing out and the liquid is a dark brown. This has a nice average black tea smell.

I would say this is a reasonably rich black tea and quite tasty. I wouldn’t say it completely bold but it’s good, regardless.

Oooo, this does sound good. Is it as nectary as a Golden Needle?

TeaEqualsBliss

Um…maybe…but a different kind of nectary! LOL

Seriously! This is a great Oolong! :)

2nd Infusion…still VERY nice. Still juicy but not as identifiable with the citrus-connection. I’m certain this would go for at least 3 infusions but I have some other teas I want to try this afternoon!

Dry Leaf Scent – Lima Beans!? :)

Post infusion…

These leaves seem to be having the hardest time opening…but…that means multiple infusion attempts for me! Woot!

I guess I can smell the citrus comparison…I wouldn’t say it was the actual “fruit part of the fruit” but maybe moreso the peel!? That type of smell…sure!

This is extremely tasty! It might be hard to describe as to why I think it’s tasty, but it’s TASTY…here’s my best attempt at explaining it, however…

It’s incredibly juicy and sweet and the more I sip the more of a citrus type thought I have…like the mouthwatering juiciness from a super fresh tangerine or that perfect orange, even…no clementine or tangelo! Now I’m not saying it TASTES like citrus flavored oolong – it mostly reminds me of the juiciness and the more I taste the juicy type taste the more I think of a tangelo or clementine. Like I said…hard to explain, I guess. It’s very sweet and natural and clean. I like this very VERY very much. And the more I sit here sipping the more I like it!

Originally I rated this a 97 – the more I “drink and think” – I am thinking there couldn’t be a better tasting SWEET/Juicy type of oolong out there…so…I suppose I should give it a 100, eh!? I just don’t know how it could be better than it already is!

Math Brisk

hmmm you make it sound really tempting ! Something I’ll have to try down the road… too bad the shipping is somewhat makes it really expensive. Well, after I’m done with the ridiculous amount of teas stacking up in my kitchen!

Auggy

Is this a flavored one or just naturally citrusy?

TeaEqualsBliss

Not flavored as such – just naturally tastes reminiscent of citrus…if you know what I mean! LOL

TeaEqualsBliss

It’s awesome, btw!

LiberTEAS

I want some. :)

TeaEqualsBliss

Oh! You are going to get some LiberTEAs!!!! :P

Auggy

Totally makes sense! I’m a sucker for anything orange-y so I had to ask!

TeaEqualsBliss

Auggy – I’m throwing some in your package for you too! :P

Auggy

Woo! I certainly won’t complain! :)

amandajo

Wow, a tea that smells like, of all things, Lima Beans, but doesn’t taste like it? I’ve been known to say that “I can’t think of anything that I like the taste of that I don’t like the smell.” Maybe I need to be proven wrong!

Why I started my TEA DAY with a WHITE Tea – I will never know! LOL but this is pretty good still. A little astringent today but as it cools at room temperature it seems to fade away.

This has to be one of the lightest weight teas I have ever tried! Very little to no scent but these leaves look so cool! They are little hairy, fluffy sprigs of gray/snowy white needle-like thingies! Once wet – they turn a greenish-grayish-brown. The liquid post infusion is light brown. It tastes earthy but not quite woodsy and not quite floral. It has a sweeter ending and almost acts like a malty-wanna be…pretty neat for a white, indeed!
