Recent Tasting Notes

78

Aroma: Beautiful orange peel, burnt sugar and woodiness, with subtle wafts of light smoke and lemongrass. The intense floral fruity notes are fleeting and fade in the cup a little. Still aromatic on second steeping.

Pallate: Deep and woody but with a complex and delicate floral palate. Distinct orange peel notes. Little to no bitterness. Almost as good on the second steeping, with a little less complexity.

Overall: A really delicate and floral dark oolong. I normally like my oolongs less fermented/roasted, but this has got me hooked. Not a cheap tea though, so for half the price I would rate http://teaandsympathy.com.au/ ’s Order Orchid Nectar Oolong as a better value tea with the same great characteristics.
