From Silk Road Teas

Aromatic, large light-green leaves tinged with hues of red, have been lightly pressed into 10-gram cakes and offer yet another way to enjoy an oolong. Our Immortals Oolong is honey-sweet and light, it will linger in the mouth with a light flavor. As the cake unfolds and its large leaves and stems unfurl, the mass of leaf will yield multiple steeps. The cup liquor is clean, light-yellow, almost a shade of green. Tea has a light fruit note, lingers on the tongue. Each cake is wrapped in white paper, perfect for travel.

I haven’t posted any teas in a while, because I’ve been getting into the smaller boutique products. This comes from Silk Road Teas, and it’s a new product for them.

The tea comes in a small cake, suitable for brewing in a larger teapot rather than just one cup. I used my medium-sized teapot, and the cake was a bit too much for the steeping basket. Still, it worked.

The tea: a lightly scented (honey-like, as the description indicates), pale yellow tea. The flavor is subtly sweet, not grassy at all, but smooth. I detect a bit of flowery taste, but nothing too strong.

I made the mistake of ordering just one cake (forgot to update after increasing the number!), but will be ordering this again soon. It is a lovely tea, and perfect for a quiet morning when you can sit down and really sip slowly and thoughtfully. It does require quiet and attention, as the flavor is so subtle. This is not for drinking on the go.

I tried this Oolong in a ‘I need X $ to get free shipping kind of setting’. I’m glad I bought it. I carefully split/separated the the mini cake into two pieces. It has the taste of honey and a slightly fruity-to-floral note. I’m a sucker for naturally sweet teas and well this one surprised me and delivered.
