Took a big cup of this home with me to enjoy while I relax. (I wore new shoes today and my feet are KILLING ME…. on a side note haha).

Anyways, I’m usually a drinker of green teas, but I’m trying to get into Oolongs. This is one of my first, and I think the very first I’ve actually logged on here, so I don’t have too much to compare it to, but I really like it!

Floral is a great word to use to describe it, but also kind of sweet. It’s very smooth, not at all bitter, and not too soft either (I like my teas to be a bit strong in flavour rather than light). There’s a flavour in it that is really nostalgic to me right now but I can’t figure out what it is.

Anyways, if you want to try a straight oolong with a nice body to it, try this one! I think I still prefer green tea but this cup is definitely getting me to fall a little bit in love with oolong too.

And just another quick note – I love how straight oolongs look, especially after they’ve unfurled in the water. This one is all bundled up as dried but when steeped really opens up to a nice full leaf.

Preparation

One of my favorite parts of oolongs is just how big the leaves get when they’re fully unrolled!
