Drinking this today out of a beaten up chipped and stained infuser mug I got in Chinatown – lmao! Looks like I might need a new mug very soon. :)

When I think of a classic high mountain oolong something like this would come to mind.The dry leaf smells a bit floral and a bit like licorice in the bag.

This was steeped for around 2 minutes at 180 F. I got a sweet, mildly buttery and rich tea which is very soothing. It has a nice floral aroma as well.

I steeped it again and the second steep was much like the first. I am enjoying it and would consider ordering it again if I ever place another order with Tea from Taiwan. Still nothing about it really stands out among the other oolongs I have tried from the same company. In a way I will be kind of glad when these samples are all gone and I can move on to something else. :))

180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 15 sec

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

49 and below Nasty
