898 Tasting Notes
I was in the mood for something SPRINGish today :)
This is really hitting the spot! Sad I only have one serving left but I guess I need to make room in my cupboard for all the Japanese greens I ordered yesterday…this will be missed though when it is gone. I would definitely buy this one again in a heartbeat!
Got this in a 5 pack with other flavored white teas a while back. All of them were pretty good, but this was one of my favorites from the set. I would re-stock but the Golden Moon coconut oolong fills the coconut flavored tea space in my cupboard. It is a lighter bodied oolong and similar enough to the white that I don’t feel I need both. This is very good though, and if you like coconut a lot you should probably try it! :)
Thank you Garret for including a sample of this with my recent order :)
Wow this is a nice green oolong! It has a sweet greenness that reminds me a bit of sencha, and a lovely floral (lilac?) aftertaste. Not as sweet or creamy as milk oolong but special and charming in its own way. I’m really digging the floral element and mineral notes!
I sure have been drinking a lot of puerh lately, huh?
Today I steeped this one at a lower temp for a longer time. I got more creamy nuttiness and less mushroom notes. Yummmmmmm!
Speaking of shu, has anyone encountered this before?? http://04561.com/image/cache/data/20110518/b3-700×700.jpg It’s puerh tea aged inside an orange rind! I’M SO CURIOUS ABOUT IT!
