Floral tea lovers, unite! I have Kashyap to thank for this sample. Thanks so much!

This is actually the second time I’ve tasted this tea. I’ve really been off my game over the past couple of weeks and need to get back into the swing of things. This is my first big attempt at righting my universe.

This oolong has a gentle, floral scent when dry. It seems very delicate. Once steeped, however, the liquor becomes a bright, golden yellow and the true magnolia scent sweeps over me. It’s really lovely in that it’s a fresh scent, not an overly perfumey one.

The taste is most definitely floral. This is definitely a scented tea, but it’s what one would expect when reaching for a magnolia tea… floral scent and a taste to match. The oolong is lovely. It’s not a heavily oxidized one, more mid to light, but it pairs perfectly with the pronounced magnolia flavor as well. This would make a very nice afternoon tea. As the tea cools, it develops a delicate sweetness that is really pleasant and makes me want to try this one iced.

The second steep (3.5 min) of this tea results in a lighter magnolia flavor and a more pronounced oolong taste. It’s still strong enough that I’d consider it a fairly equal balance of flavors, although the scales are beginning to tip a bit in favor of the oolong tea base.

The third steep (4.5 min)… and I almost never steep a tea three times, which is a shame because this one is still going strong. Now, there is more just a hint of the magnolia flavor mixed in with the tea. I steeped this for a bit longer than usual and am very pleased with it. It really holds up well to multiple steepings.

Thank you again, Kashyap!

I hear ya about being off kilter. My entire weekend was like that to the extreme… but it was odd for awhile before that to. like I was in an alternate universe haha —sorry I must sound nuts!
Happy July 4th QG! :)

I thought with you love of lightly oxidized oolongs, I couldn’t help but send this…its also amazing how different Magnolia oolongs can be, I trust the source of this one like few others….makes a wonderful cold brewed iced tea and I have also steeped this into sorbets and cream for Ice cream…So glad you enjoyed it..and as you’ve discovered, a little goes a long way :)
