120 tasting notes

The leaves of this fabled tea are a mix of light brown, white and green and the aroma reminds of stone fruits such as peach or plum.

When brewed the liquor turns an amber hue with tinges of yellow at the edges. The steeped aroma turns more to hay or Autumn leaves with hints of a sweet nectar.

When imbibing I found peach and nectarine flavors while the smooth liquor evoked images of a sweet cobbler.

A slight astringency leads to a light drying of the roof of the mouth with the flavor of Autumnal leaves making its way into the finish and holding for a fairly long tail.

I would recommend this oolong to fans of Himalayan teas, Orthodox Assams, very light black teas, Silver Tips teas and other oolongs.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
