Tea #35 from Another Traveling Tea Box
This tea is creamy and buttery with flavors of almond milk, peaches and freshly steamed broccoli and spinach popping up. It’s less floral and more green tasting than I was expecting. There’s also a lovely dry wine feeling to drinking it.
What surprised me most is that (at least when Western steeping) the first steep was the most pleasant. The quality held up for about four steeps, but the first one was easily the creamiest and sweetest. The veggie taste started taking over in 2 & 3.
It’s a very pleasant milk oolong, and honestly on that first steep (which was pretty much perfection), I was having a really hard time figuring out if it was going back in the box or not. But the following steeps made me realise I have others I prefer to this one. I’m still really glad I got to try it!
