First of my recent batch of Angrboda teas.

This is an unusual milk oolong for me. I’m used to these types of teas being oolongs with heavy, silky, mouth feel, low astringency, and mellow flavors. This has a lighter mouthfeel, a fair amount of astringency, and a much greener yet malter flavor. The milky aroma (and I can totally get the yoghurt thing) is very nice. It also has a nice after-taste (the milky aroma bounces around in my mouth after swallowing.)

This is a nice tea, but I’m always a fan of the very silky mouthfeels, especially in my milky oolongs, so while good, it’s not my favorite.

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.
