It’s a foggy day and I had to go to the balcony to take pictures of this tea for my blog to achieve sufficient light. So tasting it now is what I really desserve because it ’s chilly this morning.
This is an Oolong , result of a swap with Jillian. The Tao of Tea is another company I did not know before.
The smell is slightly roasted but nothing truly exceptional.
The tea is steeping for 5 minutes and the leaves unfold a little but not that much. The liquor is of a beautiful amber .
The taste is rather disappointing , slightly roasted , slightly woody but nothing transcendent. Correct.
This is so a sympathic Oolong but I do not really want to redo a second teapot now .
It’s a tea I ‘ll take to the office on Monday , it will be perfect there, I’ll drink it without too much attention.
