This is FABULOUS! Sweet, creamy, and rich – but not in the same creamy way I’m used to – this is more like sweet cream rather than “warm milk” – and it is as if the cream has been sweetened with a fruit of some sort… I almost want to say plum, but a very sweet plum rather than a plum that is both sweet with a hint of tart. There is no tartness to this tea at all, just sweet, dreamy, creamy, wonderful flavor. Even the floral tones are significantly different. Not at all pungent or sharp, these remind me more of a cloud if it were a flower – something soft and fluffy, but still vaguely floral.

Truly lovely!

Oh boy! I wanted something to add to my orders for Silky Green! This one sounds DELISH!

LiberTEAS

Subsequent infusions become a bit more floral but still keeps it’s creaminess intact, making for a very smooth floral note – not at all sharp. Very nice, indeed.

A good oolong is bliss.

Ninavampi

@*Michelle Butler Hallett* – Very true… :)

Kittenna

How does this compare to the Silky Green, which general opinion says tastes like a good milk oolong?

LiberTEAS

It’s been a long time since I’ve tasted the Silky Green, so I don’t feel comfortable comparing them.

Kittenna

Fair enough! Just piqued my interest as another tea to order from this company, and curious how different the two are. I may need to keep a close eye on ashmanra’s tealog!

I got a package from Liberteas today! And it is full of tea goodness! I really shouldn’t be making more tea right now, but you know what happens when you get new tea….taste ALL the things!

I love Premium Silky Green by Bird Pick, so I was especially eager to try this one. I made it in my little handmade gaiwan that I bought at Tin Roof Teas. It isn’t an “easy gaiwan” officially but I think it is the same thing. It is sooooo much easier to use than my first gaiwan that burned my hands all the time. It is just decorating a shelf now!

Wowzer, these leaves swelled immensely! The first steep was golden and while it had a hint of the baked flavor it was really more fruity than anything. It is definitely smooth and not astringent. Second steep – still golden, maybe a tad lighter but I decreased the time since the leaves are fully expanded now. Really fruity and mild!

Thank you, Liberteas! I will keep steeping but I have to cook supper now!

Tune: Traffic/The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, cuz I thought we were going to drink Lapsang but made oolong at the last minute! Traffic is black tea music to me!

LiberTEAS

I am glad that you are enjoying the tea! I am the same way with my gaiwan. I use my “easy gaiwan” all the time – like daily, but, my first gaiwan that burned my fingers all the time, it sits and looks pretty on the shelf.

Daniel Scott

Oooh, I really wanted to buy a “real” gaiwan at some point, and not the “easy” one I have. Guess it must take real practice.

The aroma of this one reminds me of one of the Charcoal Oolong Offerings that Life In Teacup offers.

It tastes different tho.

This specific tea tastes like a nice, flavorful oolong, yes, but it starts off earthy and leafy-like and ends sweeter and more refreshing. It doesn’t seem to keep the charcoal traits I thought it would based on the aroma…not that that is good, bad, or indifferent, just something I noticed.

This is a really nice oolong. Nice and strong!
