From Far Leaves Tea

“champagneEoolong; these silver tipped leaves embody the clarity of green, the compassion of oolong, and the vigor of black teas.

This is awesome!

I think that the brief description of this tea on the Far Leaves website pretty much sums up my first impressions of this tea: it has qualities that remind me of green, Oolong and black teas … and even a white tea. It is rich and flavorful, but, there is a certain delicateness and sereneness to this that reminds me so much of a pure, crisp white tea.

It is smooth and it has a sweet and sour kind of composition, reminding me of a plum … it has that sweetness of a plum, but also the tartness of it. A really enjoyable, complex tea. Earthy with hints of flower, but it isn’t an overly floral Oolong. Not a strong vegetative tone, but there are hints of vegetation in the background.

Just a really lovely, interesting Oolong that is a delightful departure from the Oolong teas that I’ve been drinking lately. Not that I’ve disliked what I have been drinking – they’ve been amazing – but sometimes, its nice to find something that is just different and off the beaten path.

As far as simple oolongs go, this one is actually pretty nice.

The flavours are clean and well executed…I get notes of a tart fruit – maybe plum? – and some toasted (rice? wheat? barley?) hints that linger at the end of each mouthful.

There’s a smooth mouthfeel – no astringency or bitterness – and it’s just such an enjoyable tea that I’m sitting here happy to be drinking it. I’d highly recommend it for days when you just want a simple, easy cup that doesn’t really ask a lot from your tastebuds.

Just got up a few minutes ago, so feeling a little foggy.

Picked this out of the sample box at random. 1st sip: It’s interesting, nothing I’d want to keep around however. Fortunately I am able to keep sipping the cup. sleepy smiles
