Fewer leaves = better infusion

Brewed in a four cup pot instead of a small pot. Definitely tastier when made in small amounts.

The dry leaf smelled delicious! I had really high hopes for this tea.
Very sweet. That’s the best way to describe it. It was just as good as I had hoped.

Not much flavour in general. Decent amount of mint, but not very tasty. Not much tea flavour at all.
Toward the bottom of the pot, I just started to get a chalky taste in my mouth. Not sure if it was from the tea, but the tea was all I was consuming at that point, so I suspect so.

What a sad note! I just can’t bring myself to click the “like” button for a quasi-tasteless chalky tea :(

Yeah. I truly expected better, as I’ve had some great Moroccan Mint in the past, but this just wasn’t that good.
I would suspect it would be pretty tasty (and better), if it were iced.

Nothing exciting. Just a morning cuppa.

When I opened the package on this tea, I noticed that the smell was wonderful. It was light and sweet in harmony with a flowery oolong smell.
The tightly rolled leaves ranged in colour from mid-green to dark greenish brown. I steeped two cups of this tea first, and as it steeped, this tea smelled just as sweet, if not sweeter, than when the leaves were yet dry. In my small teapot, they began to quickly open and expand. The aroma became a bit deeper as it steeped longer, and after a few minutes, I poured the first cup.
The liquor was a lot lighter green than most oolongs I have had recently, which surprised me. Also, there was something now unique about the aroma. It smelled a bit like green tea mochi ice cream to me. The taste of the first cup was full, not very heavy, and definitely still carried those sweet tones with it. There was a playful deliciousness to this tea that made it somehow fun to drink and very enjoyable.
The second pot was just as delicious as the first, and the flavours began to mellow out the longer I drank this tea.
I would rate this tea an 80/100 on my personal enjoyment scale.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
