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!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
