drank Formosa Oolong by Tavalon Tea
911 tasting notes

This oolong tends to fall on the more refreshing side of things for me. It doesn’t have a rich, creamy or almost chewy texture some my favorite oolongs do, but I’ve discovered that, brewed a water a little hotter than my green-oolong-norm, this tea is pretty happy for me. Mostly because something in this tea makes me think of strawberries. Not so much that it tastes of actual strawberries but more that there is a sweet, hinting-of-refreshing-and-almost-tart tingle that it puts on my tongue. It feels (not tastes, feels) like that burst of flavor right as I bite into a just-barely-ripe strawberry. So every sip gives me the feeling of eating fresh strawberries on my back porch.

And now that absolutely no one knows what I’m talking about and people are starting to give me is-your-mental-break-a-new-thing looks, I will stop. But basically yeah, not my normal green oolong – not rich enough – but still pleasant, especially on a day that has hint of summer like today.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
