There are some teas that I enjoy all year round, and then there are others that speak more of a particular season. A cold snap hit today, and put me in the mood for something warm and sweet and comforting – this tea, which I haven’t had since the beginning of summer.
I’d almost forgotten how much I like this tea. “Creamy” isn’t something that I usually want to associate with oolong, but it’s definitely an accurate description of this blend and it works really well here. It’s sweet and warm in a way that puts me in mind of something just out of the oven – maybe an almond croissant? I even like the way the dry leaves look, with their little bits of colour here and there.
