85

This was a lovely mild oolong with a wonderful malted character. I drank it quite fast and just loved the mouth-feel and the drinkability. There was something very smooth and wonderful about it though I typically like a bit of fruity top note (and that wasn’t here) I enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless. It is the perfect mix of a vegetal green and a spicy bohea black. It has a smoky smell and leaves brewed are very limp. The liquor is a chestnut color and it has this wonderful toasted walnut flavor that lingers on the palate.

Bio

I started drinking coffee at the age of 12, but I have recently found that the coffee I always enjoyed gives me headaches. Luckily I have no such issues with tea. I have just begun to discover the joys of a good cup of tea and figuring out what I like and don’t. So far I prefer black tea either Fujian, Keemun, Assam or Darjeeling that are fruit forward with a wisp of acidity or smokiness. I occasionally will drink green, jasmine or a bold white, but typically just to change things up. I hate fake fruit flavors, bitter tea or blah tea with no punch.

I live in the desert southwest, so in the hot summer afternoons you’ll likely find me iced tea in hand with a slice of lemon and sprig of mint. I also am a semi-foodie who enjoys a sharp sauvignon blanc, a jammy zinfandel or a dirty martini with the stinkiest cheese possible.

I am science nerd librarian with a love of fantasy books and astronomy. I am slowly writing a novel and dream of becoming a real writer and escaping the stacks.
