987 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!
I made it in to the office this morning despite the snow and ice. Luckily I brought plenty of this tea to warm me up, and some homemade chili for lunch.
Still very much enjoying this tea. It is very comforting, sweet, and malty. Loving it! Perfectly full bodied for a cold and snowy day.
