Brewed my second infusion of these leaves. I actually brought the water to a boil this time as I wasn’t standing over the kettle to monitor it, so I allowed the tea to cool a bit before adding it to the leaves (I generally will pour the boiling water into a cool teapot, and wait a minute, and I find that this cools the water enough to add to this greener Oolong).

The flavor of the second infusion is very much like the first. Perhaps a little more vegetative quality.

I don’t sweeten this tea – doesn’t need it! Save the sweetener for flavored teas! This one is perfect!

My daily cup of Oolong. I love this!

I just submitted my review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog, although I don’t know when it will be published. The flavor is much like a green tea – fresh and bright, but with delightful, sweet buttery notes as well. Lovely mouthfeel.

I think that this just might be my favorite tea from Narien that I’ve tried thus far.

It’s a Rooibos. Not much to really say about it…it’s an average Rooibos…typical in every way!

It’s a bit fruity, a bit sweet, a bit bitter – bit in a good way, and a bit good! It’s very flavorful but not bold if that makes sense. It’s a true burgundy color and smells a little smoky.
