This one was not like I expected it to be. There wasn’t a smell to this tea, but I think it was because this package was mixed in with the other samples. After I steeped it, the leaves smelled very vegetal and delicious and buttery. In the cup, however, the taste didn’t translate in quite the same way. It tasted almost like…. floral-y, slightly sweet, slightly creamy, cardboard…. yes… cardboard. I don’t know why it tasted like that to me. Do I have to change my steeping parameters? Never has an oolong, especially a milk oolong, disappointed me. This may be the first. But I have more one more sampling session. Any suggestions?

On another note, I am upset about where I’m living. I’m on a 2 level apartment complex and I live on the first floor with my husband and 2 cats. Some strange person came to our window and banged on it REALLY hard and scared my husband. He didn’t do anything :/ But its frustrating that these things happen. He experienced racism from someone else here too. It is crazy, and this place is supposed to be a nice area…

Anyway, I’ll just drink more tea.

I also didn’t get what I was hoping for with this tea and was really hoping you would enjoy it more. At least I know it wasn’t just me but tea itself.

As for the home situation, I am really sorry that happened. It’s so ridiculous that anyone still has to deal with such behaviors. I remember having to deal with such as a child and they don’t go away as an adult but as an adult we should be able to make the decision to not harm any human as we are all just that, humans. I hope my daughter never has to deal with such behaviors. It’s not a conversation I am looking forward too, especially since it isn’t something I can really explain. I just don’t want her innocences lost. She still sees the world as everyone being the same. The way it should be. You keep drinking that tea.

I really appreciate all the samples. I was jumping up and down like a little child when I got it! My husband was laughing at me! Thank you for your kind words. It is ridiculous to experience these things, but it happens. I hope your child never has to deal with these issues. :) Cheers!
