I am quite sad this is the last of this tea that I have with me, and thus the last I shall be able to drink for several months until after I return to the United States.

teawing

I missed it, where are you???

Spencer

In Germany for three months, with only a fraction of my tea collection and a small travel gaiwan.

teawing

Oh my, well here’s hoping you find some unexpected tea treasures and that you enjoy your time in Gross Deutschland. I am envious. :)

Spencer

Indeed! Quite luckily, there is a TeaGschwendner shop in the town in which I live…the downside being that TeaGschwendner has a disappointing selection of pu’erh, in my opinion.

Perhaps an opportunity to expand your tastes?
October in Germany, I think I might take a tea break and indulge in some good German beer. Can’t do that at work though…Where are you in Germany?

Spencer

Oh, I most certainly have expanded tastes and tried more than a few varieties and brands of German beer. Some good, others not so much.
Here in Germany, the culture is such that you can in fact enjoy a beer at work or at school (or on the bus or in public or any number of places).
I am living about an hour outside of Frankfurt…so western half of the country.

Outstanding. Best wishes on your stay and if you find some good teas, keep us posted.

Spencer

Thank you. I shall indeed.

I am very excited to try this tea. I’d heard a lot about Zealong teas — today I’m finally getting to try one!

The first infusion is a bright yellow, probably the brightest oolong I’ve had. The scent is a bit grassy, creamy — almost like a milk oolong. It’s quite smooth with surprisingly little flavor. I’m tasting a very slight fruity and tart note. A nice, mellow first steep.

Second infusion – The color is still just as yellow and bright. It smells a little bit more astringent this time and a bit more floral. I’m definitely getting many more floral notes in this cup. Also, there is a little bit of a green apple skin flavor — just slightly bitter. Reminds me of a clean, spring bouquet.

Third infusion – Bright yellow? Check! Scent is a bit more creamy and the floral notes are still there. This steep mirrors the second. A little bit floral, a little bit fruity and a little bit bitter.

I’d like to do more infusions, but I should be concentrating on homework instead! Overall, it’s a nice oolong .. but I’m not over the moon about it.

P.S. This marks my 200th tasting note! Hooray! I’ll have a yummy cup of tea this evening to celebrate!

I like this one a lot. A beautiful, vibrant taste that is nutty, a creamy taste in the foreground with a sweet, floral note in the background. A lovely complexity to this tea.

I’m already on my fourth infusion of this tea, and I’m loving every sip of it. It’s excellent.

Another great oolong from Tula! Very clean, smooth, velvety, and almost celery-like in taste. Juicy! I really like this!

I was thrilled to find Zealong available in Canada through Tula Teas at the recent Victoria Tea Festival after hearing great things this New Zealand grown oolong.
I have always been hesitant to try oolongs grown outside of their original growing locations, but the Zealong folks have done a brilliant job.

I easily steeped this one 6 times, about a minute each time, just under the boil. As the name suggests, a very clean, sweet and pure aroma coming from the cup, and the beautiful clear yellow liquor was quite striking.
Beautiful silky mouthfeel, sweet and soft floral buttery flavours.
Looking forward to trying the roasted version soon!
