Tea of the morning……

This is a sample i have had for a while. I had a pot of the regular Bailin Gongfu a few days ago, and decided this was a good time to give this one a go. I am generally not as concerned about a tea being Organic, but I know others are. I did notice that it is currently out of stock. The other thing to note is that it is twice the price of its non-organic counterpart.

So far, this seems very comparable in taste. There are definitely differences, but they are subtle. I still get the malty, chocolatey notes in the regular version. This one might be a tad less earthy, but that note is subtle in the regular version, too. Definitely a great tea if your teas being organic is important to you. As for me, I will continue to drink the other.

Usual teapot method.

My previous experience with osmanthus oolong left me craving more and I really enjoyed the notes of apple and apricot. My first steep of this tea more than met my expectations and while the flavors are somewhat different than I encountered with the last variety I tried, there was still a fruit-like aspect which appealed to my sweet tooth. Rather than apples and apricots, this tea leans more towards a peach-like flavor. It is full of sweetness, with a subtle floral aspect from the oolong.
