897 Tasting Notes
I am actually drinking the new autumn harvest version of this tea. I’m not sure if it was the power of suggestion or what, but I taste apricots! There is a richness underneath the floral/apricot note. I am really digging this. Still in the early steepings- I can’t believe I’m supposed to get TEN steepings from these leaves! I am really enjoying this one and I haven’t even sweetened it! I might try sweetening a later steeping just for fun. I usually enjoy a tiny bit of raw sugar in my oolongs.
WOW! This tea is TRUE burnt sugar caramel flavor. Super rich and wonderful! I wish I had ordered more than just a sample of it…there’s a hint of maybe floral on top of it all? I assume that is a note from the oolong itself coming through. Goodness though, wonderful dessert oolong! Makes me think of the crunchy top of a creme brulee.
