I have to admit, this tea smelled and tasted a bit off-putting to me when I first brewed it. Maybe it was the unfamiliar roasted nuttiness in an oolong that seemed strange to me? But the more sips I took, it really, really started to grow on me. It is truly unique and sweet and smokey and nutty, and I ended up really enjoying it.

In early 2017 I re-kindled my love of tea after a long coffee-filled hiatus when I read this article: http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/02/best-tea-where-to-buy.html and enthusiastically dove into the world of puerh and Taiwanese oolongs.

I now drink tea daily, usually brewing in my trusty 250ml gravity steeper which I find offers a nice in-between of gongfu and western style brewing. I still love my gaiwan, and will always turn to that when trying a new tea.

I am loving this journey, and excited to continue exploring this awesome tea universe.
