This is a bonus sample from mj

The dry leaf smells really pretty. It didn’t smell fake. It didn’t smell overwhelming, either.

The tea itself wasn’t too too strawberry, but it also muddled the flavor of the oolong. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m also for not a big fan of strawberry, warm or cold. I’m also not huge into the flavored oolongs, so I’m not going to give it a rating.

I will take the rest of my sample back home and see how it is cold brewed. I think that’s where this tea will shine.

mj

I like this cold brewed a lot, but I’m also a huge fan of it in general so who knows if that means anything.

Cheri

It smelled nice, but I didn’t get as much of that when it was hot. It might be perfect cold brewed. (Plus, I love oolong cold brewed.) I’ll try it. It can’t hurt, right??

mj

It definitely cannot hurt :)

Dear mj thank you SO much for sending this: it is SO good! Another cold brew, because I don’t know about you guys, but over here, your dress most certainly sticks to your thighs when you sit down for too long. It is SO H0T! Now to the actual tea part: the strawberry flavour in this tea is perfect: not too much, just enough to say it’s in therre. It does not outshine the oolong, but compliments it beautifully. There is a whisper of floral notes and a bit of a grassy flavour that pairs really well with the flavouring. The astringency of the tea is so light, and gives the tea an almost bubbly quality, like the mouth feel you get after drinking good champagne. Such a soft and wonderful tea. mj thanks again, this is rocking my world right now :D

I like reading your reviews because i feel like you describe teas very well, the perfect mix of someone who sounds like she knows her stuff but still relatable

mj

This one totally rocked my world too! I’m glad you liked it :-)

Omg THANK YOU! It means so much to hear that! Sometimes I read other people’s ultra poetic or technical tasting notes and I feel like I’m doing a lousy job compared to them. At the end of the day though, I think some teas are inspiring and deserve more attention and elaborate descriptions, and others are just like “Yeah, tastes like x,y,z. Ok Bye.”. Also, when you start trying too hard in your reviews, I believe other people can tell it’s not natural – at least I can – and it kind of ruins it, ya know? Someone likes my tasting notes, yay! :)

I picked this up the last time I was visiting the BF in Maryland. I think it’s new for the summer. First, a gripe about Capital Teas: when shopping in the store, you have to buy 4 oz minimum. Who wants to do that?? My intention when stopping in was to buy a little bit of a few teas to try, but that was not to be. Sigh. I asked if I could buy smaller quantities and was told no because they come with the tin…..but I don’t need a tin, I told them. Blank stare. It looks like online you can buy in 2oz quantities, at least.

Anyway, I had to choose carefully and I am extremely pleased with my choice. This tea is just so extremely pleasant. Dry, the tea smells pretty strong. I was worried that the strawberry flavor was going to be way too much. When you pour the water on, the leaves burst open like they’re spring-loaded and the strawberry scent is unexpectedly delicate. This continues with the taste of the tea. The primary taste is a nice roasty oolong, which I’m learning that I prefer to the greener oolongs (although I’m in love with DT’s vanilla orchid oolong, which is greener but that’s an exception). About halfway through the sip, the strawberry makes an appearance and is so delicate that it’s more like this tea makes my tongue remember what strawberry tastes like rather than my tongue actually tasting it presently. The strawberry taste is more like strawberry jam than fresh strawberries, although it’s not very sweet. I know that seems contradictory but that’s the best way I can think of to describe it.

I think it’s ridiculous having to buy 4oz, especially in store, makes no sense! But I’m glad you got lucky with that one at least :-)

mj

I know! I was annoyed. None of their teas are exactly cheap either, so that will prevent me from buying very often from them. Although, damn it, I’m kind of hooked on this oolong now. It’s three steeps in and hasn’t lost any flavor!
