From Tealux

Grown in the Da Yu Ling mountain region, this tea is a prized oolong in high demand by tea connoisseurs everywhere. The regions high altitude, unique changing temperatures and heavy daily fog all play a part in how this tea produces its unique characteristics. Golden in hue and rich in flavor, this tea, from the world’s highest tea plantation (more than 2500 meters), offers a marvelous floral aftertaste, unfolding like the nectar of a fragrant flower through your senses.

Da Yu Ling is a lightly oxidized oolong tea with a distinctive flavor. Rich, pure, smooth and refreshing; this tea leaves a light sweet after taste that coats the mouth. This high mountain tea is best brewed gong fu style and can be infused up to seven times without losing its essence.

So, nothing against it, but I’m not much of a Valentine’s day type of gal. I much prefer unexpected love days throughout the year :-)

But since today is supposed to be about love (and not about picking up some cheap flowers last minute at a grocery store cause you feel you have too), I chose to do things I really love.

Drinking this tea was one of them. Top 3 favourite tea of all time for me. Discovered Da Yu Ling last year, I keep two from different companies, equally good. Learned that it is grown at the highest plantation in the world, 8500 feet altitude!

This green oolong is similar to some of my favourites Tie Guan Yin, but brings it to the next level.

I’m using the yixing pot I dedicate to fragrant green oolongs. The brew is a beautiful bright yellow colour.

The aroma is breathtaking. I picture a vast garden with luxuriant vegetation all around as I sip on it. Think orchids and lilac scent, mixed up in a twirl of honey and fruity notes. Not sure what’s the specific fruit I get, but it feels like apricot to me.

It’s very sweet, and yet, the finish is minty fresh. Not in your face mint, more of a sweet faint spearmint. The most fabulous phenomena about this tea is how long the taste lingers in the mouth. Long after I’m done drinking it, I can still feel its imprint.

This type of thick buttery mouthfeel always reminds me a silk ribbon dancing in my mouth!

It’s pure liquid gold, but I rarely see people reviewing any Da yu ling at all.

Is there other Steepsterites out there that are as taken by it as I am??

I’ll end this note with a little love story…

It might have been the side effects of the snowstorm, but my cat Happy today was such a little bugger. Dexter (my dog) and I were trying to chill, me having tea and reading a book, him all curled up next to me. Happy likes Dexter’s ears. He’s obsessed with them . He keeps toying with them while Dexter tries to nap. Eventually, Dexter wakes up and gives me the helpless puppy look while Happy takes over his whole head. So what does a 100 pound dog do to an anoying kitty you ask? Well, have a look here:

No worries, although it looks like it, Dexter is not having a “Happy meal”, lol!

Here’s how it usually ends:

As the song goes «…so “happy” to-ge-therrr…»
