I finally feel relaxed enough to get out my gaiwan and my oolongs to play with. My fiance is here too and is enjoying helping me taste my teas. We are putting each steep in my little ceramic tea pot and using that as a fair share so we get a nice even flavor. (Have I said thank you Teavivre often enough yet?)

Now, I haven’t had any tea in a while so I am out of practice picking out notes in tea, but this is nice and comforting. It tastes flowery but not overly flowery. There is a slight buttery taste at the back of the tongue, but it is just a hint. It tastes more green than a roasted one.

There is just something very complex and very simple about this at the same time. It is very nice and with the super short steeps it is very smooth. This would be a really nice oolong to introduce to someone that didn’t know oolongs and is very comforting right now.

I used one little sample packet to fill my oolong and it looks like I have a little forest in my gaiwan. I used boiling water for my second round of three steeps.

Flavors: Flowers

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
