(10 second wash, 1 minute steep) Are green oolongs supposed to taste like seaweed? That’s what I smell, and that’s my initial impression of the taste. But there’s so much more going on with the seaweed taste that I can’t say I don’t like it. It’s smooth, it’s not bitter at all. It’s reminiscent of a grassy green tea drunk with a side of miso soup, but the mouth feel isn’t nearly as delicate. Overall, this is a REALLY interesting tea, but I can’t rate it till I taste more oolongs for comparison. (Edit. Wakame, or spinach. That green, almost salty smell with a hint of astringency. But it doesn’t taste like spinach. IDK. Tea is weird.)

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
