328 Tasting Notes
What a delightful and unusual oolong. I have been into oolongs lately as they seem naturally sweet and can be resteeped many times.
This vendor, Dr. Tea , roasts his oolongs in a process similar to coffee beans and voila! with an addition of some vanilla and other flavorings- this really tastes like coffee. I am quite suprised that more folks here have not tried this vendor’s unique product!!!!
Thanks to Ashmanra for this sample! This was a light and pleasant tea- I was not suprised to learn that it was a blend of Chinese tea. However, as I would typically drink this in the morning, I may prefer a bolder blend to start my day….I still have some left so I need to give it a try one more time…
Just like the description reads- orangey and creamy. Very good. And the darjeeling taste comes thru..
I have grown to really appreciate this tea. This holds up well to multiple infusions – which is quite convenient at work using Puritea’s personal tea kettle. It is warm and toasty. Cannot get bitter even if you let it steep to long. No need for sugar. When I first tried this one, I did not use enough tea leaves to water, and the tea tasted too mild. Now that I have mastered the steeping parameters, I really like this one. So I am upping the rating and am considering a purchase!
This oolong lasted 5 infusions. Naturally sweet and this is one w a discernible flavor and no background vegetative taste. My favorite so far….
Tastes like a big juicy blueberry! More sweet than tart! With milk, does seem like I am eating a gooey danish.
