Oh, I get it now.

Yum.

I finally got to try this tea with the proper amount of tea to water (i.e a heck of a lot of tea to not much water) and the right temperature of water and I get the flavors others are talking about.

The floral and fruit overtones. The not really buttery but the feeling that if it got a little closer to a cow, we’d be in sweet cream territory flavor.

I like this, I like this a lot. Thank you so much Lena!

I LOVE this tea. If I could afford it, I’d drink yellow tea every day, several times a day. A good, buttery Oolong is pretty close to it though… so I have Oolong every day, and Yellow Tea when I want a special treat.

Ah yellow tea, someday our paths shall cross and I will “get it” too. But until then I shall fall deeper in love with oolongs. :)

lol @ “the feeling that if it got a little closer to a cow, we’d be in sweet cream territory flavor”. Great and original metaphor!

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
