So most oolong’s have been good to me. This one is very good in fact I bought a bag of this after trying a sample from Adagio and it is almost gone already! Very light in comparison to many oolong’s almost like a silver needle, but has more body. It steeps to a light yellowish green, smells of clover mixed with grass. Taste starts like a white tea, but as you hold it in your mouth the oolong slowly comes out to play. As you steep this the leaves slowly unfurl, which is fun to watch. I like teas that make me want to drink them while waiting for them to steep! The leaves fully open after about two steepings.

This is what I had thought a good green tea would taste like, I’m still looking for a green that I can keep in my tea stash all the time and drink daily. Until I find that green I have this, until it runs out!

I’ve been able to steep this multiple times and continue to like the results. As it cools the flavor stays very stable. Some teas the taste changes as the temperature does, this one seems to hold its flavor with varying temperature (at least until my mug is empty). I may have to buy the big bag of this from Adagio…

Bio

A man, not a myth or legend. Inspired equally by Muir and Merlin (hence the exotic spelling of the welsh latter). I’ve been drinking tea for many years now, but got pushed into loose leaf by observing my co-workers and realizing that there might be something more here than just boiling water and a tea bag. I’m glad they gave me a push… It has been fun so far!
