A couple days late, but who enjoyed the Dexter premiere? So weird to watch it during the summer when it’s so hot, eh? I particularly appreciated Deb’s password.
Today was my first day in the lab so I spent some time combing over recordings in order to find useable data. Nothing so far.
That said, when I got home I wanted something clean and fresh. No flavours, no fancy tricks, just classic oolong, and this seemed like the perfect fit.
The dry leaf is a mossy green with a super delicate floral scent. The first steep is about half floral and half vegetal in flavour. It’s quite straightforward.
Second steep is even more vegetal, actually borderline bitter. Any hint of floralness have been kicked to the curb and now a slightly buttery note is creeping in. But it’s barely, barely there. The vegetal note is still owning this tea.
Third steep is my favourite. It’s the most mellow, the vegetal, slightly bitter edge isn’t as harsh, and that buttery quality is a little more present than before.
The fourth steep, which is the last, is like a watered down version of the third steep. This is why I decided to stop here, since from here it’s losing any spark it has.
Would I buy more? No, but I’m glad I tried it.
