From TeaSource

The first time you see this tea your mouth will drop in wonder (and perhaps confusion), Then you begin to smell the wonderful sweet floral aroma, and begin to see the beauty of the light green leaves that have been lovingly hand-processed and hand-pressed into these small cubes (1.5” square). When you break off about 1/3 of a cube and steep it as an oolong, it delivers a marvelous aroma, and wonderful liquor that is sweet and silky, with tremendous mouth feel, that yields many infusions from the same leaves.

This is one of the loose leaf options available at our local coffee shop. When I go on a coffee “date,” this is regularly my choice. Normally, floral teas are not my favorite. However, this tea has a light aroma and smooth taste. I like to let it steep for at least four minutes, because of its’ light nature. The second steep is even lighter, which can be a turn off for many. My suggestion is to make this in a pot so that the taste remains as potent as possible.

Great afternoon tea!!

When I say “TeaSource” and “local shop” I thought.. wait a minute, are you in my neighborhood? Ah, well. (TeaSource is based across the river in St. Paul) I remember seeing these little cubes before, but I can’t recall if I ever tried them. Your big-pot/afternoon-tea suggestion sounds like a good one.

Comes in 1" cubes of pressed leaves. Is more in the Taiwanese/Green leaf production style which might be surprising if you’re expecting to see a blacker tea. But the flavor notes are wonderful. Floral top notes are very subtle, a somewhat grassy finish, but not overdone. Won’t be everyone’s favorite oolong, but my palate appreciates the grass/floral combination and I could imagine it pairing well with savory foods vs. sweets. I’ve gotten at least 3 fine steeps from my single-cup measure, TeaSource’s instructions recommend using 1/3 of a cube.
