Another virtual tea party with Ashmanra. I am trying this oolonh for this first time. The dry leaves smell faintly floral to me. It has nice full leaves when brewed and the wet leaves smell a little floral and a little like butternut squash to me. The tea has a mouth filling creaminess that gets more hints of floral notes as it cools.

I did a second steep for 7 minutes with about the same temp water. The leaves are now even bigger & more vegetal smelling. The tea itself still smells lightly floral, like jasmine. It isn’t as creamy and has more vegetal notes. But still more creamy than vegetal.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec

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)
