Thanks chrimbro for the sample!

I was a bit apprehensive about this because I thought the Monkey-Picked Oolong Christina had sent me was practically tasteless, especially considering how expensive the tea is. This tea is not quite as expensive but still on the steeper side and I would have never bought this on my own.

The flavor was much better than the supposedly “highest quality” Monkey-Picked but IMO not worth the price. I’ve had better oolongs frvom the Asian market that were a fraction of a fraction of the price of this oolong.

However, ignoring the price and value of the oolong given the price, this is a tasty tea. The flavor is not nearly as subtle as I would have liked or expected, but it’s drinkable and pleasantly so.

The Monkey-Picked Oolong I sent you is much older than this one. (Over a year old, I think… eek. This one I got about a month ago) That might have contributed to it’s less than stellar taste.

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
