From Nothing But Tea

This Milky Oolong tea puts a new and delicious twist to the age old oolong tea. Jade Oolong tea leaves from Fujian Province are heated with milky vapour before being rolled. Giving the tea a milky sweet aroma. This tea will stimulate the palate with a smooth milky and slightly creamy taste with a lingering milky aftertaste. The steeped tea is a pale green hue.

100g pouch

Brewing Advice: One teaspoon per mug. Add hot but not boiling water (80 deg C). Steep for two to three minutes. Suitable for Multiple Infusions.

((only available to Tea Buffs))

Today it was a craving for something a bit fresher than the blacks of the sampler box. Something with a little more perky to it.

So therefore I pick the tea that smells of warm strawberry yoghurt. No my mind doesn’t make sense to me either.

Still. It’s fresher than Indian blacks.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll take my tea and find my book. I had to get off the train this afternoon just at a really exciting spot! O.o

Can’t resist asking … what are you reading?

Angrboda

My train-book is Gullstruck Island by Frances Hardinge (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gullstruck-Island-Frances-Hardinge/dp/1405055383/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278004398&sr=8-3)
If you like fantasy and/or YA, I sincerely recommend checking FH out. I own all the three novels she’s got out so far, bought the first one on the order recommendation of a friend who knew her at some point so he was doing some name-dropping. I think they went to school together at some point. I liked that one ( Fly By Night ) so I took a look at what else she had out. Next I read Verdigris Deep which I liked better than FBN, and now this one that is by far my favourite book by her so far. I wish I could world-build half as well as her.

Will check it out. My Mount-to-Be-Read is about unclimbable as it is, but love hearing about new good stuff.

First of my recent batch of Angrboda teas.

This is an unusual milk oolong for me. I’m used to these types of teas being oolongs with heavy, silky, mouth feel, low astringency, and mellow flavors. This has a lighter mouthfeel, a fair amount of astringency, and a much greener yet malter flavor. The milky aroma (and I can totally get the yoghurt thing) is very nice. It also has a nice after-taste (the milky aroma bounces around in my mouth after swallowing.)

This is a nice tea, but I’m always a fan of the very silky mouthfeels, especially in my milky oolongs, so while good, it’s not my favorite.

This is delicious and I will definitely be keeping a stock of it in as much as I can. It’s the second milk oolong I’ve tried and it leaves the other (from oolongteashop.co.uk) in the dust; if that was milk oolong then this is cream oolong. Richer and heavier, more luxurious.

Leaves a little bit of dry mouth, but it’s nice for when I want a savoury, slightly malty tea without going as heavy as black teas.

I didn’t get this in my oolong sampler box! Boo! When I’m ready to make another order I’ll have to see if I can get this one too.

I think it’s a Tea Buffs tea, so you need to be enrolled in the loyalty scheme to get your hands on it because they only have limited stock. IMO that’s worth doing anyway though, because every three months you get a voucher for (I think) 5% of what you’ve spent on tea the previous quarter, as well as being able to buy some exclusive teas. I’m pretty sure you just need to email Chrissie at NBTea to join, but I’d have to check with the evil twin because she set it up.

Angrboda

Aw cool! That explains it then, I’ll go do that. :) Thanks. :)
