What a lovely Oolong! I selected this as one of my three samples because I don’t recall ever having tried a Da Yu Ling, and today as I read through the whole description of the tea, I see that it grown in the Li Shan Mountain, so perhaps this is similar to a Li Shan or an Ali Shan. I don’t know, I fear I’m not as knowledgable about the tea growing regions of Taiwan as I’d like to be.

But, I will say that while there are some similarities to some of the Li Shan Oolong teas I’ve tried, this one seems different. It has a crisp, fresh taste to it, very light and floral, almost perfume-y, but not in a chemical perfume kind of way but more like the flavor of the air when you’re walking near a field of flowers … specifically, I taste orchid. Perhaps also some lily. The flavor is sweet and exotic and very enjoyable.

There is a slightly fruity undertone to the flavor too… like a delicate flavor, like an Asian pear (or what I used to call apple pears) … sort of crisp and light in flavor like that.

I am really enjoying this. Please watch for my full-length review of this tea to be published on November 19th on SororiTea Sisters. http://sororiteasisters.com

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
