Serenity Tea House

Recent Tasting Notes

84

Ok… so this is asample I bought from Serenity Tea House in Box Hill, Vic. It’s not like any oolong I’ve had before, even other highly-oxidised ones. The dry leaves smell of musky roses and maybe orchids (as opposed to gardenias or peaches); they’re dark and fine but only loosely twisted, so I didn’t bother with a rinse to open them up.

The liquor is dark amber and, again, tastes nothing like any oolong I’ve ever had before… it tastes smooth and dark and sort of chocolatey like the Keemun I had from Santion a few weeks ago. A second infusion and both the taste of the liquor and the scent of the wet leaves is beginning to take on fruity Darjeeling notes…

Most odd. Quite enjoyable though. Like drinking several different teas in one!
