From Culinary Teas

Narcissus Oolong is considered one of Fujian Province’s finest exports. Light floral notes with a mild fullness reminiscent of a Pondicherry red pepper. Full bodied with an astringent finish.

Thanks to Alphakitty(?) for this one. Unfortunately, I must have done something wrong, because it had almost no flavour when I brewed it up. Literally, did not taste like anything, and I gave it three minutes. Oh well. Better luck next time!

Yup, this one is from me! I think this one needs a large amount of leaves per cup.

Yeah – it’s not like there was a bad flavour or something! I will try again. :D

Backlog:

A really interesting Oolong. Sweet and floral, with a mild sweet pepper taste to it. I was really kind of surprised by the sweet pepper taste … in a very good way. I really liked it. It brought a unique and very compelling element to the cup.

The texture of the tea is soft and smooth, with a cleansing astringency that sort of wipes that soft, buttery texture off the palate in between sips. I like that the buttery notes don’t build too heavily.

A very enjoyable Oolong. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/05/27/narcissus-oolong-tea-from-culinary-teas/

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Mostly because many of the teas I’ve gotten from this company I’ve had pretty rotten experiences with.

1st steeping – 4min @190ish- This is a greener oolong than I’m used to having, but it’s not unpleasant. Kinda green tasting but not like an in your face veggies! kind of taste or like I’m chewing on grass or something. Lol. Just fresh and bright. It also has a nice light sweetness, though I’m not getting much in the way of floral taste. Or else it’s there, just very subtle.

2nd steeping – 5min @ 190ish – A bit weaker in overall taste, but still not bad. I probably should have steeped a bit longer. Maybe next time I’ll try steeping it for 5:30 or even 6 min. Probably try both since I have enough. Still greenish and I get a slight peppery taste from it too, which is strange since I’ve never really experienced it. But it’s not that bad either.

I think it’s about all done out at the second steeping since the flavor was very weak. But it was a good tea. I’l definitely finish the rest of what I have and I might even order this one again.
