From Joy's Teaspoon

Once brewed, you embark upon an incredible journey through the natural sweetness of the licorice root and the aroma of the ginseng. All along, however, is the floral smoothness of a delicious oolong from the Fujian Province in China. The leaves are large and rolled, making this tea ideal for 4+ steepings!

This oolong really lives up to its name! It’s a beauty to be sure and I’m so grateful to the incredible Naomi of Joy’s Teaspoon for letting be one of the first to sample it. I adore the perfect balance of the antioxidant benefits of green tea, and the depth of flavor that comes from delicate fermentation you find in oolongs. I’m partial to oolongs, but make no mistake this oolong is special.

Blue Beauty is a gorgeous, medium bodied, floral oolong with vegetal and licorice root notes. I’m in no way a black licorice fan, but the licorice root flavor is very subtle and tasty in this tea. I brewed this tea at 185 degrees for 3 min. and I was able to get a solid four steeps out of the leaves. I was so sad to finally empty my infuser, but I’ll defiantly be placing an order for more very soon.

Please check out my website for a Sharp Cheddar Cashew Spread recipe that I created to pair with this wonderful tea:

Thank you again Naomi for sharing this tea with me!

I’m pretty convince from looking over the offerings from Joy’s Teaspoon that the teas come from East Indies Tea Company….they only sell wholesale (outside of their own store) but the owner is amazing and a wonderful person

Hi Kashyap! As of right now, I work with about 12 different tea farmers and wholesalers. I do, in fact, have a handful of East Indies’ Teas and I heart Mim! I am in the process of switching all my teas to be directly from the growers but it will take some time to make those connections and be certain that I am getting some awesome teas! You know your teas!

Kashyap

12 is quite a few to juggle, but I completly understand…you have to be able to find the right fit for your client base and find the right value against the quality they seek…good luck sources direct as being able to draw from direct connections is the best way to be able to represent the farmer’s story…Mim is a joy and I celebrate knowing her….

Jenn

I won’t pretend to know anything about running a tea shop, or buying tea directly from growers etc. However, I do know a bit about business and how difficult it can be to strike that balance between cost, quality, and client demand. I have nothing but respect for Naomi’s high ideals and her efforts to bring them to her business.

Kashyap, you do know your tea. If you don’t work in the industry, than you’ve missed your calling :)

I love how many tasty steepings I can get out of this tea. It’s smooth and yet slightly floral. I like it as my afternoon tea since its a smooth flavor and while I need a little caffeine pick me up but I want an easy taste.

This is one of my favorite teas. The best part is the after taste. I love how the ginseng lingers on your taste buds. It’s such a smooth tea it’s easy to drink at any time. The pre-brewed smell is a little funky.
The version I have is not Joy’s tea brand but I am not sure of who made it cause I can’t find it in their online store (Cooks of Crocus Hill – Goods and Goodies)
