This tea is Doke rolling thunder from Dolly Lochan in Bihar, India. The tea is an amber colour, with no turbidity. The brewed liquor has a dominant scent of jasmine, with some floral/rose overtones. The first infusion was smooth, creamy, and tasted just as it smelled; jasmine. There was some subtle notes of pepto bismol, which was odd. The astringency was strong in this one, and the first infusion was also quite bitter even though I followed the instructions to a ‘t’. Luckily I don’t mind bitterness, and quite enjoy it occasionally, if it is meant to be a part of the profile.

Second infusion the bitterness mellowed out and the tea tasted much, much better. Jasmine was stronger, less pepto bismol, and a slight smokiness lingered. The astringency was still pretty strong.

Overall, a decent tea. Not something I would personally drink on a regular basis but I did enjoy it. A little bit of sugar brings more of the creaminess to the fore.

Can I just say how much I appreciate that not only do you not rate your own teas, but you don’t rate others as well? Try as you may, you’ll always be biased towards your own teas, as we all would be, but you’re not using that bias to influence other companies’ teas, and that is something I greatly appreciate in a tea company and makes me want to order from you! Off to browse your website! (I also love that you’re in Ontario, like me!)

This reminds me of the Nepali silver, in that it is an oolong with olive and musk melon notes. This is a smoother, milder take on those flavors though. The leaves are small but whole, slightly bronzed. They look a bit like Russian olive leaves. The liquor is a light golden brown. While this isn’t my favorite style of oolong, it tastes very wholesome and natural, and now and then it makes for a nice change from the floral oolongs.
