drank Oolong Tea by Yamamotoyama

Thank you Starberry for sending me this sample!

Mmmm… This is good. I wanted something smooth and simple at work and this tea did not disappoint! This is also my first time having oolong on its own (though now that I taste it, I’m pretty sure I’ve had it at restaurants before) and I’m glad I did because I really like it a lot! It’s one of those teas that you can just have no matter what kind of mood you’re in. Unlike chais, breakfast teas, and herbals, I have to be craving their flavors. This is the taste I used to think of when I thought of tea as a child. It kind of makes me wonder what higher quality oolongs taste like on their own.. BECAUSE THIS IS PRETTY GREAT TO ME! It’ll be interesting to compare. I’ve got some Monkey-picked oolong at home that I can try and see the difference!

The only thing I have against this tea is that it leaves my mouth feeling dry after taking a sip.

I’ll definitely be picking some of this up for work!

Not much too say. I love tea! Especially greens and oolong. I also really enjoy the occasional fruity tea, but really I’m up to try anything.! …Well except earl grey, I really don’t like bergamot.

When I first joined I usually always forgot to finish my last sip of tea leaving it cold and alone, destined for the drain. Nowadays I still leave the last couple sips of tea. I really drink my cups slowly, HOWEVER, I almost always finish my cups now, even if they are room temperature.
