My first Wuyi Oolong and quite a tea for its smoky camp fire without the over powering essence like Lapsang. Its quite akin to roasted nuts maybe close to a Dragonwell but without its sweetness of chestnuts…alomost like roasted banana leaves. A light tea, not too savory, a bit like Chinese greens, certainly a tea for the late afternoon and even at night. A perfect tea to go with a delectable Phillipino/Malay dessert called “Suman” or roasted coconut sticky rice wrapped in banana leaves! Certainly a must have tea!

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
