This was a nice treat courtesy of my DAVIDs frequent steepster points from last quarter. It’s been a lovely day of treating myself. I have the day off of work and started with a float tank session this morning. Tonight I’m taking in the performance of Ballet Boys so it’s a truly full-sensory day off.
This twisted leaf oolong has a delicate light texture before being brewed up (50 grams fills a whole DAVIDs tin) and smells just like you’d expect a standard oolong to. Once brewed though, there’s a distinct roasted flavour which emerges and is quite pleasant. There’s not a trace of bitterness and instead of a creamy profile the roasted and almost nutty flavour creates a more complex oolong than I’ve experienced. At $23 for 50 grams though, I think it’ll be reserved for points redemptions and treat days!
