drank Wuyi Oolong by The Republic of Tea
2445 tasting notes

I think my tea died. Honestly, this tin is about two years old and it just tastes like meh. I have heard that some oolongs age well, like puerh, but this isn’t one of them. I don’t know if my tastes have evolved that much or if I made it badly today or if it is just too old to have much flavor left, but there really isn’t a whole lot going on here. I don’t taste any fruitiness or the stone flavor that grabs you with a hard hug that I get from good, dark oolongs. There really isnt a nutty taste anymore. This is so light in flavor.

I guess if I wanted something really subtle this would be fine, but we are doing geometry for Pete’s sake and I need something stronger!

Teavivre’s Monkey Picked would be heavenly right about now.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten 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…
