More Star Trek before bed and more Oolong. This was received with my recent Tealux order, the name inspired my purchase.

In raw form the Oolong is long and thin in the shape of random curls of dark brown colour. Also note there are some twigs/stems present too but not many.

It has a sweet, wooden yet sugary scent. Rather unlike any other Oolongs I have come across. I would say the sugary scent was very similar to raw sugar cane.

It’s steeped scent is much different now, strong and leathery with malt but still the sugar cane is present. Now it’s in-between a black tea and medium-high oxidized Oolong.

Flavour matches it’s new steeped aroma. It’s sweet and smooth with malt and wood tones. It’s not dissimilar from Dian Hong, only much sweeter. Also getting a subtle hint of smoke in the after taste along with some dark fermented fruit.

It’s just bizarre, it’s so similar to a black tea….I keep telling myself it’s an Oolong but the taste buds are refusing it. I love it, will have to definitely buy more of this for the future. Husband loves this one too which is rare for him.

If anyone else is sipping tea and is a Star Trek fan then here is a video for you to sip, watch and enjoy. :)

I’m 28 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
