From Mountain Tea

Very well known among tea drinkers this semi-oxidized tea from the mountainous region of Nantou, Taiwan has a delightful flowery aroma, brisk flavor, smooth body, and fruity finish, all of which combine to make this a pantry stocker.

Tea like this is why I drink tea!
I do favor darker oolongs more than light ones but come on! This is INSANELY good!
I have written a long review for SororiTea Sisters site but let me just say YUMMMMMM!!
Here are some Sound Bites from my full length review:

A bit like a peach that is not quite ripe enough to be eaten yet but temping nonetheless. There is a subtle sweetness as well somewhat like honey but not cloying. A nutty note plays around but disappears quickly, lingering fresh asparagus, dandelion, and fresh flower notes prevail.

Things just slow down around you. I find myself not quite so annoyed by my doggies incessant barking at the neighbor’s dog, not quite so bothered by the television blasting noise from the other room, not quite so anxious. Through all that noise I rather am picking up on the birds chirping happily outside, the sun is steaming into the house more brightly, and I just feel peaceful.

Ohhhh Yes!! This is one of those teas that makes me realize how far I have come as a tea drinker.

I think I just drooled a bit on the computer…

LOL I wish there were a LIKE button here!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

I was interested in this one but ended up getting others instead. I’ll have to put this on my list now.

Azzrian

As long as you got others you can’t go wrong with this company in my opinion!
For sure to get next time though :)

Each leaf is rolled into a roughly 1/4 inch pellet. Medium green color, with occasional brown stems; fresh, green oolong aroma.

Infused, the aroma is like cooked asparagus, and the taste is similar: healthful and satisfying. Clear, light/medium green liquor. Each pellet of Jade Oolong opens into a tip and two leaves. Surprisingly smooth body for this flavorful tea. An interesting “change of pace” tea.

Another sample by Dr Jim (thanks!)

When I brewed this I immediately thought of asparagus! My husband said it smelled like brussels sprouts. Good thing I enjoy both of those.

A light colored oolong with a nice, delicate taste. The second steep was just as good as the first. A pretty good oolong in my book. Not the best I’ve had, but I enjoyed it!

The dry leaves are much larger than most other oolongs I have had, and unfurl into long twigs with several large, whole leaves on the majority of them. What oolong balls open up into almost always astounds me. I brewed this tea gongfu-style in a small porcelain teapot.
With this steeping, I got a faded dandelion-yellow color broth that had a simple, bakey aroma without too much apparent depth. While I’ve not had other Jade oolongs, this particular one seems at least very closely related to a medium-baked Muzha tiekuanyin. The taste at first seems relatively two-dimensional, but it has a light, pleasant astringency paired with a faint, almost honey-nut tone, along with a ubiquitous, slight herbaceous underscore.
I’m not particularly crazy about this tea, but I’d definitely recommend it for someone who likes lightly roasted tiekuanyins.

Very strong green floral with a strong honey sweetness. This tea has a very strong and pronounced character/flavor/identity as a green oolong and is tasty, if that’s your flavor. However, as distinct and strong as the taste was, it was a bit one dimensional to someone who isn’t a huge fan of floral green oolongs (i.e…. me).

Still thought this was a good tea, though, especially at the price point (I think I got it for something ridiculous like $7/5 oz? I don’t quite remember, it was on mega clearance when I first got it, the heritage honey was only $5/5 oz at the time as well, and I think it’s currently $12/5 oz since they’ve gained some visibility) and tastes deliciously full of nectar and honey which come out front and center when cold brewed.

Flavors: Floral, Green, Honey, Sweet

Sipdown of this one too :( It didn’t take long for this to become my go-to afternoon tea, so the 2 oz. I purchased to try went really fast. Must get some more asap.

Nicole/Tea-Historic

they’ve got a sale going on, but not for this one. :(

Tamarindel

I saw that! Still sounds like a good sale though, I would never say no to Black Pearl :)

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Oh, and the honey jade for sure. I’m about out of that one!

Wow, this smells really sweet! The instant I poured water over it, it started smelling like candy, and the candy-scent didn’t stop wafting over at me from two feet away the whole time it was brewing. It’s also floral and lightly fruity… maybe lychee? (Not that I remember what lychee tastes outside of gummy candies anyway.)

I’ll do a second steep tomorrow. Hopefully.

Tea #31 from Considering a new TTB
This is another company that I’ve been meaning to place an order with, Dr Jim introduced me to them in another TTB I was a part of last year and I fell in love with several of their teas. This is one I haven’t had a chance to try yet and ended up being exactly what I was looking for this morning. I’ve been craving something sweet and this has a sweetness to it that tastes almost like peaches. I may consider ordering some of this in the future, I really enjoyed it.
