1/18/14 Afternoon tea. 3g/6oz/190F/4min Just a plain oolong. To borrow a beer term, this is a session tea. Pleasant to drink when I want to drink a tea just as a background to doing other stuff. I’m almost out of this tea, which I got from Upton in 2011.

I’m really not in a good mood (I don’t know why, it’s frustrating) and instead of getting a tea that’s going to be comforting for me I decided to review a standard grade Formosa oolong, and honestly just from smelling the dry leaves I’m pretty sure I’m not going to enjoy this one, also the leaves look much nicer in the picture than in person, they’re much more broken up and aren’t as dark as shown, in fact a few of my leaves are green, but anyways

It’s very woody, and mildly roasty and nutty with this sort of dark decadence about it, its rich and actually quite nice, except for this slight .. oddly acidic aftertaste which in all honestly is very unpleasant, so I’d have to recommend just not stopping your sipping, like ever because then you’ll just be sad and that’s no good, there’s also kind of a very concentrated sort of astringency that’s just sorta setting up camp in the back of my mouth, also not very excited about that, really though in all honestly it isn’t that bad, it’s mildly complex, it just doesn’t excite me at all, and i’m not typically big on darker oolongs personally, but I could see people liking this

meh
