Well, I was intending to have any more tea tonight, but then my mom
demanded requested some, so of course I was willing to oblige. I brought out this green oolong from my Butiki order because it has been a while since I have had a greener oolong. I was absolutely in love with them for a while, but then something about my tastebuds suddenly changed and there was this new flavor in there that I didn’t enjoy so much.
Anyway, on to this oolong. As it was steeping, the leaves were unfurling so beautifully. They were seriously perhaps the most whole leaves I’ve seen for an oolong after they unfurled. The tea was sweet and smooth with a bit of vegetal notes as well. I still taste that weird dampness that I can taste in other green oolongs with my messed up tastebuds, but it wasn’t too strong in this cup. There didn’t seem to be anything earth shatteringly different about this green oolong, but I do appreciate it and loved just watching those full leaves unfurl in my clear teapot (aka one of the best teaware purchases I’ve ever made).
