I am a big “milk oolong” fan and it never lasts long whenever I have it in my cupboard because I drink it all up so fast. This one is particularly good; I love the subtle milky taste. I’ve been served cheap imitation milk oolongs before (beware of these as they are actually not very good for you) and those have a sickening strong “milk candy” smell. This is the real deal and it is quite good.
Good morning Steepster. I am doing okay aside from having a fractured finger which is really annoying and somewhat painful!
Anyway this is a good tea for consolation purposes. ;-) Today it’s a sipdown. I will certainly get more someday, it’s a great Golden Monkey. Today I am really getting such nice malty notes.
Nearly through the last of this. Have one other container of this cold steeping in the fridge and then it’s gone. I think that this might be one of my favourite straight teas to brew cold. There’s just something satisfying about this one – a little sugar and/or lemon and i’m golden. :)
Very nice amber color, which looks especially nice in a Bodum glass. This tea is at its tastiest after a few steepings (maybe peaking in the 4th or so), and after letting cool down significantly. Smooth and pleasantly (not overwhelmingly) earthy, with a very pronounced sweetness in the finish that becomes apparent after a couple of steepings.
It’s also difficult to mess this one up with too much or too little steeping time, or not using enough leaves, etc. It’s an “easy” tea to make at work, without watching it / controlling all of the variables too carefully.
I might be in love with this as a cold brew. I have a giant pitcher of this in my fridge at the moment and it’s how i fully intend to drink the rest of this up as i love this as a cold brew. I had three glasses of this tonight with dinner and with a splash of lemonade added to it, it’s super perfect.
Had this tea hot to warm up to. I love the smell, to begin with. The dark color of the tea looked like coffee brewed and there was definitely a texture to the tea. I brewed it a little bit longer than I was supposed to (I got distracted!) but it never got bitter. I’ll reserve this for a treat on foggy mornings.
SIPDOWN! (225) it’s colder today so i’m opting for a bit of chai. I finally remembered to try this one steeped in milk so that makes me super happy. This is for sure a chai that i prefer steeped in water with a bit of milk and honey added after the fact. I think it’s because of the citrus in this chai that becomes slightly muted when steeped in milk. It’s not BAD in milk, it’s just that part of what i love about this chai is the orange/citrus aspect of it! yay for a wonderful time drinking up this tea from red blossom.
