drank Orchid Oolong by Mighty Leaf Tea
1904 tasting notes

I got this tea in a swap with someone on a LiveJournal tea comm that I’m part of. My reaction when I first smelled this was “Mmm, coconut” which indeed initially seemed to dominate the tea. As it neared the end of its steeping time is gained an odor that reminded me of nothing so much as cooked corn on the cob (weird, I know).

I take a sip and think “Aww, this tastes disappointingly bland” and then suddenly the flavour is like “Oh hai!” and it’s a rush of flavour all at once and afterwards it lingers in the back of the throat. It’s a sweet taste, with definite notes of coconut, but there’s also something that’s sweety floral underneath – and maybe a hint of vanilla aswell.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
