My friend had wanted to try my favorite oolong in my collection. I had saved the last 6g of this for a “special occasion.” So what better occasion to try this again than with a tea newbie?

Now, I’ll note that I used to drink this tea differently—err, I had thought of it differently, perhaps; however, my friend had pointed out new flavors that I’ve never thought about until I really thought about the tea while drinking it with him.

My notes, without his palate would’ve read, “Honeydew, jack fruit (?), and slight pineapple.”

Yes, there are “fruity” notes to the tea, but the best explanation of the tea now is: “Buttery water with fruit.” He noted specifically, “That little bit of water left in the bowl after eating broccoli—buttery and vegatal—that, with a bit of fruit…..”

I still really enjoyed this tea…..

Flavors: Broccoli, Butter, Fruity, Honeydew, Pineapple

Drinking down a lot of my teas in 2020. I may not observe these sessions as much as I’d like, but I’ll note them, when the mood strikes.
