The only hot tea I have brewed up currently, another sample from Azzrian! Thrilled that it’s another pouchong blend, as I loved Mandarin Silk from the Persimmon Tree.
Aroma is definitely deliciously green oolong with a hint of fruitiness. Oh man… yeah, I think we have another winner. Sweet, real peach initially, which fades into a general fruitiness as the oolong flavour slides in. Delicious. The base is fabulous here, and the flavouring is amazing. I can see myself drinking this on those days where an oolong craving strikes, but I want something a little sweeter. This cup is disappearing VERY quickly. It could stand to be a touch stronger, but I might be thinking that because I just had a couple strong iced teas. Also, absolutely zero astringency/bitterness.
Thank you so much Azzrian! Although I get some misses from you, I’ve also had some absolutely HUGE hits, especially recently! It’s wonderful (yet oh so terrible wallet-wise).
ETA: Less flavour but still delicious second infusion. Drank a bit more after sampling some other teas, and wow is the oolong flavour powerful… and delicious!! Love it.
ETA again: Third infusion too light to bother, most days.
