Another sample from Teamore. I like this one better than the Thurbo, although they’re not entirely dissimilar. I’m getting lots of grassiness and a fair bit of astringency from this one as well, but here these notes are brighter and crisper and juicier than they were in the Thurbo.

Hmmm, surprised to see a bit of astringency in this one. Not sure if you used boiling water but I find this specific oolong really needs lower temperature water. :)

Great tip Stacy. Castleton is what started my love of tea. I had no idea what I was ordering in a tea shop and it was all over from then on. Just ordered more. I have always found this one to always be very smooth making it one of my favorites.
