LOVE! The flavor is very floral, intensely floral! With the first cup, I noticed strong honeysuckle-like flavors … with the second cup (infusions number three and four), I found it to be more like honeysuckle and Orchid, and with the third cup, the floral notes became more like a mellow medley with fewer distinct notes. Mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Lovely sweetness to this tea, and hints of peach and citrus.

Wonderful Oolong!!!

Weekend mornings are oolong mornings, it seems. It’s just that I always want to spend time with an oolong and evenings are bad because of the caffeine so it’s always got to be a day with I have a few morning hours to spare. This oolong is definitely worth the time.

Steep 1: Mmm…so floral honey and creamy and sweet. It has an unusual crispness. I’m not sure how to describe it, but it’s intriguing and delicious.

Steep 2: Vegetal now, but still sweet and smooth. It tastes like summer. Like the smell of the country in July, full of promise for a fruitful harvest. (I hope you’ll forgive my poetic inclinations this morning. :)) It’s also a delicious floral perfume and a hint of fresh cut grass or maybe budding spring greenery. I’m trying to describe it objectively, but this tea just tastes like imagery instead. No wonder oolongs always make me feel so meditative.

Steep 3: More vegetal and more creamy. Like a creamy vegetable soup. Asparagus? not really… milder. artichoke heart? hmm… maybe.

Steep 4: That floral essence is sort of in the background now with the vegetal aspect being more assertive. That odd delicious crispiness is also stronger. It is pleasantly drying on the tongue. There’s a bit of a honey aftertaste. The caffeine has me feeling alert and invigorated, which is great since I plan on going for a jog soon. It’s such a beautiful day, I might not even need music to convince myself to keep going just a little longer. :)

I think I’m good now. I maybe steep more later but I’m done for the moment. Good bye delicious oolong samples from t-oolongtea. I’d buy more but I’ve got lots of tea to drink through first. I really need to drink through my collection faster! I need more visitors so I can make tea for them! Also, when I ask people what sort of tea they’re interested in, they NEVER pick oolong. Sad.

EDIT: My 200th tasting note! Cheers! clinks mugs all around :)

This has been such an enjoyable tea that I’m sad to see it go. I love watching the tea leaves unfurl. So beautiful. The floral honey flavor is excellent. Oolongs really are the best.
