Thank you so much to SimplyJenW for sending me a sample of this! This tea blew my mind. Not in the sense that it tasted so good that my mind overloaded, (it does taste quite terrific mind you), but because it is alleged to be nothing but pure camellia sinensis. It’s very buttery and creamy, which kind of put me off at first smell, but once I took a sip I realized I was mistaken in my initial assessment. The best part, for me personally, is the aftertaste, when that creamy taste that’s lingering in my mouth mixes with the vegetal taste that I’ve come to expect from the greener oolong teas. That vegetal taste gets slightly stronger with subsequent infusions, but the creamy buttery taste is ever-present, and stays powerful long after the first infusion. I’m intrigued by this tea and may just have to buy myself some.

Bio

I’m on leave from college because making superficial relationships with hyper-competitive wunderkinds wasn’t exciting my passion. Instead, I drink tea. I like all types, but oolongs tend to be my favorites, and I’ll smack you upside the head if you put anything but lemon in my tea. My palate isn’t super experienced yet, and I don’t know exactly what I like and do not like yet, but that’s the whole fun in it right? The mystery steaming from each cup?
