I like how they call this “royal courtesan” instead of concubine =P Hehe
This is my first Chinese oolong after having so many samples from Tea from Taiwan. I quite like this – it’s smoother and toasty and just very pleasant.
Maybe I like roasted oolongs instead of green oolongs! We shall see, I have more tea to try from Zhi!
I would say the best steepings were the 2nd and 3rd!

Bio

My favorite teas are Taiwan high mountain, Anxi, Wuyi, and dancong oolongs. I also need my deep steamed sencha every now and then. I’m not totally into flavoreds but I’m always up for interesting flavors (like ATR’s Nirvana and Toasted Fig). My favorite natural flavors are roasted and floral.

I have a BA in Biochemistry from Smith College with a minor in Japanese. I have a Masters of Bioscience from Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA.

I love J-R&B and J-Urban and used to do a radio show on WOZQ Northampton, MA. I also play WoW (Aireene on Proudmoore).
