drank Cream Oolong by Tillerman Tea
15 tasting notes

“Heavenly” is the best description of this tea. The green oolong used to make this wonderful tea is some of the finest that I have tasted from Taiwan. If that was not good enough, the “cream,” what ever that might consist of, makes this tea purely exquisite! I brewed the traditional 2-3 (2:30 exactly) minutes at 195 Fahrenheit in purified water, and was rewarded after two steepings, with two wonderful pots of tea. This tea has an aroma of caramel and sweet green oolong. The flavor is the oolong is surprisingly mellow, were it not for leaving out the sugar, this tea would taste like you were drinking a cup of liguid caramel. The aftertaste contains an ever-so-slight briskness, but also a bit of the creaminess lingers on as well taking the edge off. Overall, and I am not one to give such steadfast valuations of teas, I would consider this tea the best cream/milk/silk oolong I have ever had. Thank you very much Tillerman’s Tea!! I do hope you are still around (I bought this tea, if you could believe, on a Nov. 2008 trip to San Francisco) so I can buy some more from you!
