SIPDOWN! I needed a tea i knew would be super delicious this morning to kick off my day after the green teas i had. I picked this one as there was just enough for another cup. I will be restocking this in future to have as a great black to rotate through my cupboard. thanks nicole!

thank you nicole for sending this one my way! I enjoyed this a lot this morning – it was just the thing to get me going after a rough night of the crazies waking me up several times. I have another cup that i’ll spend more time with tomorrow since i didn’t get a chance to really focus on it before i had drunk it all up!

I’m glad you liked this one. I definitely want to always have it on hand.

Tea #21 from the traveling tea box.

Dr Jim put a fair amount of this tea in the box and I could have sat here and drank it all, it was just that good. Don’t worry, I left quite a bit for everyone else to enjoy.

When I saw this in the box I knew I had to save it for last and make sure I had enough uninterrupted time to myself to sit here and enjoy it. I’ve always been in love with oolong tea, although I haven’t had a chance to try many milk oolongs, so this was a real treat and a great way to end a really rotten week. The flavor of this tea is wonderful, the flavors run from sweet and floral to buttery and milky depending on how many times you steep it. This is one tea that resteeps very well, so don’t stop with just one steep.

This is the final tea that I’ll be trying so the box should be moving on tomorrow or Friday at the latest

Preparation

Wow, nutmeg! Dark brew, all three steeps. A natural sweetness. This does remind me of something you’d drink out of a snifter at the end of a nice dinner party.

When it comes to oolongs, so far I prefer the green ones to the dark ones. But I like the quirkiness of this one. Will have to play more with the steeping times and temperatures.
