I opened my little sample bag, and was greeted by a very light ans subtle aroma of the loose tea. After I finished infusing it, the aroma changed dramatically, with very prominent orchid notes. It was actually rather nice, as it had a stronger aroma than my Qi Lan tea, which was one of the only things missing from that tea.

The tea its self was a very light Oolong with a very smooth taste. The taste is hard for me to describe, but it seemed flowery to me. The after taste of this tea was actually excellent, with a warming sensation in that back of the throat, and a more prominent flowery taste.

Unfortunately, like most light Oolongs, I only got five infusions out of this tea before it became too bland. The Aroma and the flavor decays gradually over these infusions, and the aftertaste starts to fade away, leaving behind a rather bland taste. Regardless, it was a wonderful tea, and one that I look forward to getting more of in the future,

Bio

I am a university student, studying Computer Science, who found that I really enjoy a nice cup of tea. I finally got into loose-leaf tea in August of 2011. I am currently in the process of expanding my horizons, and have found that I have a particular fondness for Oolongs in general, and Wuyi Yanchas in particular. The unique mineral taste is very appealing to me, as well as a nice Sencha. More recently, I’ve developed a taste for Sheng puerh, white tea, and black teas. The only things I’ve tried that I didn’t like was Shu puerh, but that might have been because it was quite young. Regardless, I’ve been slowly expanding my horizons, so if you have any recommendations, please feel free to send me a PM.

Just for the heck of it, my other interests include classical musics (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Verdi, Debussy, Shostakovitch, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, and Wagner, to name a few composers). I also have a fondness for a bit more modern music, like The Beatles, all Jazz (by all, I really do mean all), Gorillaz (I love Demon Days), and a couple of Indie artists you will never run across unless you play a lot of semi obscure Indie games. Also, I love cats.
