drank Wenshan Baozhong by Harney & Sons
60 tasting notes

A very nice oolong. This one has been sitting in my desk drawer for awhile at work and this morning seemed like the day to sample. It is light and buttery and floral with the first steep. Even on a busy morning when the tea has grown cold it continues to have a lovely flavor. I think I even abused it with using a water temp that should have been too hot. I must thank Ashmanra for sending me this sample.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
