86

I’ve drank this a few more times since my last note, and I have a few more thoughts! This is a strongly floral and sweet tea, and it’s a little astringent and nutty which I think is what reminded me of Lipton. The liquor itself smells really floral and malty at the same time, and is a deep gold color. I’m also getting more bitterness as the tea cools. This is an interesting tea and really beautiful to watch steep. Deep green curled oolong leaves unfold with tiny osmanthus flower pieces.

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. :)
