This was actually my very first taste of an Oolong, and I was all prepared having watched Youtube clips while waiting for my tleafT order to arrive so I knew to give it a rinse and then pour fresh water over steep .. This was also the very first tea made in my new Japanese Zero 450ml teapot which by the way is totally cute & fills my big mug with a little left over to top up when I’m half way through – and I’m really liking them both! :D
This has quite a strong vegetal scent, and the first mouthful tasted very ‘green’ indeed .. I left it to cool off a bit and when I resumed drinking I found it to be mellow and sweet, a comforting tea with a lingering taste .. And yes I also get the fuzzy mouthfeel that Miss Sweet described, only I enjoyed it :P
I can’t wait to try more Oolings because this was really yummy!
