drank Alishan Oolong by unknonwn
1083 tasting notes

Several months ago a friend of mine visited her brother in Taiwan, and she brought me back some teas. This is the one oolong she gifted me, and it’s a gem. The first time I sipped it I did a double take at the leaves to make sure it’s an oolong because the malty flavor was intense. Good intense. There is also a thickness and smoothness to this that I appreciate. I’ve enjoyed shot steeps where the flavor is brighter and a touch floral, but the longer steeps are my favorite.

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
