From Whispering Pines Tea Company

This very smooth Taiwanese oolong has woody notes with a lightly-sweet fruity flavor, comparable to peach and cherry. A truly memorable cuppa!

Another retry here.
Going to measure this out, I was pretty surprised at the amount of twigs/sticks I see mixed in with this tea. I don’t think I noticed this when I first got it because I was pretty new to loose leaf tea and figured that’s how some teas were. But looking at it now, I’d kinda surprising.
The brew smells kinda like burnt coffee, but I’m wondering if that’s how it’s supposed to taste, or if it was just because my water was too hot. I followed the instructions on the front, actually used slightly cooler water than they recommended but only by a few degrees.
Thankfully the tea doesn’t taste like burnt coffee. It’s vaguely fruity? And kinda woodsy maybe? Hard to pin down actually. It’s just a sort of generic tasting tea.
Maybe my taste is all wonky or something, because it’s very strange to me that all of these teas I’ve been trying from them are just so overall vague and meh. Maybe I’ll go back in another few months and give them all a shot again to see if anything has changed again.
Unfortunately this one is getting tossed in the swap bin for now, and rated accordingly.

Another one from Dexter3657! thanks so much! I think I liked this one more than others if the Steepster rating says anything, even though I probably shouldn’t have, since this is usually the sort of tea I don’t really like. One teaspoon, a few minutes after boiling, for two minutes. It tastes like a hojicha mixed with a Fujian tea, with the charcoal flavors, also a tiny bit like Laoshan Black. (I really shouldn’t be comparing it to that one all the time, as I realize not everyone has tried that one. And even different harvests would make a difference.) So it is certainly an odd mix of flavors here. I don’t need a ton of teas like this in my collection, but I will certainly enjoy the remainder of this sample whenever I would like a tea like this.

This was just ok – or maybe a bit less than ok – what’s less than ok – mediocre?
Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it, not unhappy to see it finished.
