I wasn’t sure what to expect with the osmanthus but am enjoying it quite a bit. I favor black teas, but was pleased to get several oolong samples from Teavivre, and its always fun to try new teas from them. I’ve had good experiences from pretty much everything they’ve sent me. This oolong has a subtle floral aroma. The brew is smooth and refreshing- pleasantly floral but not overpowering. I look forward to several more infusions.

Thank you Angel and Teavivre for this sample they sent me a little while ago. The aroma of this tea is relaxing. It’s earthy and a tad floral. It makes me think about a rainy day in the woods. The flavor is really nice and mellow. It’s earthy with notes of vanilla and honeysuckle.

I decided to have a relaxing morning with my new tea pet and gaiwan.

First:
20s
The aroma of the wet leaf is very sweet. Slightly floral. But there is still a touch of earth and smoke. Mmm :] The flavor is very sweet with light touches of honeysuckle.
Second:
30s
Aroma is still sweet but the smokey note is starting to come out a bit more. The flavor is still sweet with a strong earthy note.
Third:
40s
The aroma is sweet but the earthy\smokey notes are starting to take over. Ooo this steep is dark. Beautiful deep chocolate brown color. The mouthfeel of this steep is thick but smooth. The flavor is sweet with strong earthy notes. That touch of honeysuckle is in the background.
Fourth:
50s
The aroma is still earthy and smokey but the sweetness has almost vanished. The flavor is very earthy with honeysuckle notes. There is a slight roasted nut flavor. But only slightly.
Fifth:
1m10s
The aroma is kind of leafy and burnt(in a good way). The flavor is very earthy with toasted nut and sweet notes.
Sixth:
1m30s
The aroma is slowly making it’s way back to sweet and earthy. There is still a nice burnt\smokey note to it. The flavor kind of reminds me of a raw mushroom. Still earthy. Still sweet. I’m catching a slight honeysuckle note again.
Seventh:
2m
Aroma is nice. Sweet and earthy but still has that burnt smell to it.
The flavor is sweet and earthy with light hints of honeysuckle.

Oh my goodness, this is divine. Malt and honey aren’t typically flavors I’m crazy about, but here together they create such a warm, savory, delicious cup. I accidentally oversteeped my second helping of this tonight and there was no astringency. Love! Some foods have the reputation for being “comforting”, I would say this tea has it as well. So happy I got to try this one!

I am getting a ton of milk oolong! (The flavored one, because I am not a connoisseur :) I love it, it’s my favorite one I’ve ever had, yum.

Sipdown (118)! I have definitely had this tea before, but I don’t see a previous note about it, so I guess I just forgot to log it last time. Anyway, this is a perfectly nice, light, floral green oolong. It is a bit weaker in flavor than other oolongs that I’ve had, so I don’t think this one would be a restock for me. However, I’m really enjoying it.

On a side note, I’ve found that lately all of my green oolongs have had this damp flavor to them. Not sure if that has always been there and I’m just becoming more sensitive to it or if I need to store them better or they’re just getting old (but they’re not THAT old!). Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see if this happens when I buy fresh tea. I hope not because oolongs are my favorite, and this damp-ish flavor is hindering my enjoyment a bit.

Edit: The steeped leaves are also really beautifully full when they’re unfurled.
