drank Golden Osmanthus by Lupicia
80 tasting notes

Tis a quiet little tea. Thank you Ricky for sending this one my way.
Truth is that I have heard the fragrance note ‘osmanthus’ and was curious as to what exactly it smelled like. What exactly it tastes like, I am in search of that as well… work probably isn’t the best place to acquaint myself with either feature.

What I do get from this tea is patience. It has a dusty veg-ital scent that I can’t place but don’t find off-putting. Floral hay, maybe? The liquid turns a kind shade of chartreuse that is very pleasing without sugar and even after hours of steeping neglect. This aspect of the tea is a huge plus in my busy schedule.

I finish my sample tomorrow and perhaps will find more suitable words to describe its flavor. Until then, its charming and accommodating little tea.
Thank you again!

Haha, you’re welcome. I haven’t even tried this tea yet. Oolong scares me sometimes.

Really? Why not? I like watching the leaves uncurl and this one looks like ragged lawn clippings. It’s sort of funny in a way. :)

I don’t know, in the beginning when I first had it, I loved it (black oolong). But then it started tasting like darjeeling and I couldn’t take it anymore. Oolongs are the last on my list to try generally. Green oolongs are amazing though =]
