After a weekend of downing sodas with all the kids – I had five people between 14 and 21 here all weekend – I wanted to cut the sugar today. I love all my teas plain now so choosing the beverage was easy!
I had not had this one in a few months. When I first got it, I loved it. I preferred darker oolongs. My tastes have changed so much, and so quickly. I really prefer green oolongs and green teas right now, words I never thought I would say. But this smelled SO GOOD, so complex, when I opened the tin that I went with it.
This is the toastiest oolong I have ever had in my meager experience! The first cup was smoke, smoke,and more smoke. While I am not really getting cinnamon out of it today, there is a spiciness to it. On the third steep, the aroma of cinnamon seemed to creep in, but not so much in the flavor. This is a very interesting cup!
