The first steep is a bit weak, but promising. The liquid is a dark yellow with a strong floral scent. The flavor is very floral and I can definitely taste the lilac note, along with a bit of buttery-ness and cinnamon. Nice mouthfeel on this oolong as well! I’d consider this a decent everyday oolong.

Studying for my last midterm tonight, and so relieved that they’re almost over. The professor said our test tomorrow won’t even take the whole class period (75 minutes), so that’s promising as well. :)

Thank you both! The exam covers 18th century literature and a few historical points.

Gotta love that “almost done” feeling when it comes to exams. Good luck!

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
