Recent Tasting Notes
I want to thank Pureleaf for this one! :)
This smells crisp and fresh with a bit of gentle charcoal-type oolong to it.
The post-infusion color is a light yellow-brown.
It tastes like it smells! It’s very crisp, clean, mouth-watering and hydrating, it’s fairly sweet, and YUMMY!
I’m drinking this while eating a Quinoa Tomato Corn Zuke Dish I made last night for lunch today! Check out my Blog for the recipe and pic!
I finally get to leave a tasting note on this one!
After searching high and low for a reference in English (everything on the container is in Chinese), I found ONE place only with a listing; this place must have went under a while back, however they haven’t shut their website down just yet. Nonetheless, I’m very happy to now add this one to my cupboard.
Personally, I’ve drank more of this Monkey Picked Oolong than any other tea I own. It seems to be consistently dependable and reliably refreshing.
I have tried many different collections, regions and methods of production of teas…and I still come back for more. Maybe it’s because this one was a first love, as I started the switch over to loose leafs and liberation from the traditional boxed tea bag collections. Possibly, the fact that it’s vegetal with other mild floral notes and provides a smooth sip of nice tea. Whatever the reason, I embrace my enjoyment of this one and continue to restock it without question.
