Backlog:

A really unique tasting tea. It has some similarities to a really good genmaicha, although there are differences between the two. Most specifically, this doesn’t have the same ‘roasty-toasty’ taste that genmaicha usually does. This is more of a softer, sweeter kind of rice taste.

Subtle vegetative notes and distant jasmine notes. A really pleasant, unique tea. I loved it. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/12/10/rice-fragrance-santikhiri-green-tea-tea-mania/

drank Osmanthus Oolong by Teamania

Backlog:

I love Osmanthus Oolong teas … Osmanthus often has a “peach-like” flavor to it, so, I think it compliments the Oolong very nicely. This Osmanthus here is a little less like peach … and a little more like pollen-y nectar, and I’m liking this difference. I love the peach notes of Osmanthus, but I like that this is different. It gives off a unique sort of sweetness that I enjoyed.

Smooth, buttery, creamy, honeyed. Beautifully floral. I got six very enjoyable infusions from the tea.

Nice review. As I was reading of this, I was remembering having had such a tea and the descriptor that came to mind was ‘buttery’ and as I read on in your review there was ‘buttery’. “smooth, buttery, creamy, honeyed..” so true…in the end it is a peach cup of tea disguised as an Oolong tea.
Thank you, lovely review.

Another from Nicole_Martin! :-)

I like the fresh, ginseng-like quality to this tea and the delicious milkiness. There is a bright coppery note that I’m not overly fond of- It’s just a shade too strong to be completely pleasant.

A really lovely Oolong. VERY nice!

Floral tones: flowery in taste and aroma … I tasted honeyed orchid. The honey-sweet tones are also evocative of honeysuckle. It’s a very mild tea … it has a very soft, gentle taste from start to finish. A very enjoyable, complex tea.

drank Oolong Black Pearls by Teamania

Backlog:

A really delightful Oolong. The leaves look like a tightly wound green Oolong, except that the leaves are much darker, like a chocolate brown color. A lovely fragrance to the dry leaf: floral and sweet.

A very flavorful Oolong. Honey-esque. fruity with juicy qualities. Earthy and woodsy. A really nice, complex Oolong.

Oolong Beauty Queen got a sweet, fruity taste with a light floral note. The color is honey like.
The second infuse was even richer in taste as the leaves are already opened. The third infuse is comparable to the first two. Any further infuses are so so.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 15 sec
Tamburrini

Tasting Oolong Beauty Queen is a relaxing soothing experience. The mild aroma and smooth sweet flavor delight the palate. The rich taste persists up to three infusions and wanes thereafter.
