I got a random free sample of this with my BF Teavivre order, because apparently I forgot to choose my free samples on that order. I’ve had this before but I’m glad to try it again because looking at my tasting notes I was confused about my samples of this one (namely whether this was light and floral or roasted).
This cup is smelling very sweet and very floral. I do think that the last sample pouch of this one that I had (that I actually logged) might have been mis-packaged, because I found that one to be roasty. The first two were not roasty (that I could remember), and this one fits that profile. It is green, it is floral. It is quite lovely, although dong dings aren’t my favorite green oolong (I prefer the buttery florals of a tieguanyin).
Also even though I have been trying to be less number- and sipdown-focused when it comes to my cupboard (it’s why I haven’t been calling sipdowns and posting my number in posts), I feel myself getting a little bit twitchy about it’s increasing, so I am trying to drink up samples. But then I feel like I am neglecting my other teas in larger amounts. Maybe after my cupboard stabilizes (after my swap from MissB comes in and I know it won’t be growing anymore), I will try to drink everything in my cupboard once before cycling back around! That would definitely be interesting.
