I drank this oolong a few weeks ago and forgot to review it. But thanks to the three pack sample I received from the generous Angel at Teavivre, I am able to drink some again tonight.
You know when you eat a nice dish and there’s that taste you like but can’t quite put your finger on? Well for me, it’s often the same ingredient, I always go, «oh, yes, that’s what it is» once I find out.
Well again, here’s that “secret” ingredient, but this time it is so obvious to me that I can identify it quickly: nutmeg!
Yes, big nutmeg and strong floral notes. It’s got that buttery feel as well and with the spiciness, it makes it an almost savoury oolong. There’s a fresh astringency cutting through the thickness of this tea. I like that.
The leaves are perfect, large and unbroken with many stems still attached to them.
This will be my last tea of the night, as I’m only at my second steep and it will go on forever, I can tell.
Angel, thank you for giving me the opportunity to try this wonderful tea, much appreciated!
