Time for my daily Oolong fix! What a delightful time of day it is!

Having a “daily Oolong” is something that is fairly recent for me. I would try an Oolong, fall in love with it (this happens with almost every Oolong I try!) and then I’d put it away and hoard it… deciding it was far too special and needed to be preserved and cherished. Finally, one day I realized I wasn’t doing me or the tea any favors by hiding it away and not drinking it. So now, I celebrate and cherish Oolong in a different way – by trying to make time for it every day!

I have but just enough for another day of this Formosa Pouchong – but oh how I’ve enjoyed it. Buttery, smooth, luxurious mouthfeel! Lovely! So good.

The best part is that more infusions will follow! One of the things I really love about Oolong tea!

You make a good argument! I tend to do the same thing with my favorite teas, hiding them away for “special occasions” – foolishness, clearly ;)

I didn’t know about you and Oolongs! Next time I send you a package, I will seek out my Oolongs and give you some. I am a very faddish drinker, and recently have become all about smoky teas and Darjeelings. I am much too old to hide away my favorite things (I remember the impulse to do that).

I got four very flavorful infusions. A truly excellent Oolong,

I do that too about the teas that I really like, especially if it’s stuff that I got from others and can’t easily get more of. The four smoky samples Auggy sent me is a prime example. I loved them all, but I have to force myself to use them, because running out is so painful.

Finally getting around to my sample of this!

I’m only on my first infusion but should have time for one or two more here at work if everyone leaves me alone. The dry leaves smelled really verdant and grassy in the cute little sample bag. As it was steeping, the floral and buttery notes came out. The flavour mirrors that: this is sweet, buttery, and somewhere between floral and grassy. There’s also a slight toastiness. Very refreshing! Helping me wash down a piece of the peanut-butter-ice-cream-and-brownie-cake I made for the boyfriend’s birthday.
