I think this is what I’m drinking… Not sure. I was falling asleep at my desk at work, so I decided to hit up the new coffee shop that opened up in a garage around the corner. I had my mind set on a soy latte, assuming they wouldn’t have any tea that met my standard. Well, behold they have loose leaf tea’s from Red Blossom in Chinatown! Far superior tea any coffee house usually carries. So I grabbed the Oolong, but I forgot to catch what kind of Oolong it was. From the look and taste of it I THINK this was it. It’s super tasty! And now I am more awake then I have been all day. I am so glad I didn’t get a coffee. Long live tea!
Stroll into the cliff-side tea houses of Fujian or the dim sum restaurants in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and you’ve likely experienced the captivating aroma and flavor of this amber oolong.
Hints of chocolate, caramel and butter. Mildly smokey and spicy… just enough to transport you to early 19th century China, and the cup of tea in your hands is all that’s important in the world.
