This is not what I am used to drinking from a oolong tea. It doesn’t have that strong rock/mineral taste that I usually associate with oolongs. That doesn’t mean that I don’t like this. I do. Quite a lot, actually. The flavour is deeper, and very familiar, but I can’t quite pinpoint what I am tasting. Sweet. Smooth. Pleasing.

Dry aroma is sweet, fruity and nutty.

Second steeping holds flavour well.

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
