MMmmm leaves smell like vanilla pudding. Thank goodness I didn’t imagine it the first time I steeped this up.
I checked my little 6oz pot and got a hit of lemony citrus with vanilla. Not orange.
I steeped this one up for 2.5 minutes so I can do a few re steeps with it tonight. mmmMMmm creamy citrus oolong with vanilla lingering. I really appreciate the citrus in here, and I think steeping it for 5 min as I did initially (see previous post) hid the citrus flavour and made a more pronounced vanilla.
I am sure that the vanilla will come around with later steeps. Currently though – I am really enjoying this.
Edit: I was curious just what the ingredients are.. “Taiwanese pouchong oolong tea, lemon myrtle, marigolds, natural flavouring”
…Now I know for sure I’m not crazy and I tasted lemon, not orange. I wonder why they put orange in the description? Weird.

Preparation

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
