Brewed it a bit stronger today. The malty, sugary notes that I’m used to are really coming out this time. The aftertaste of Assam reminds me so much of a honey taffy my mom used to make… Seriously crave-worthy. Bumping up the rating a few points.

…usually brew in my favorite brown teacup, but just poured a bit into a clear glass out of curiosity. Gorgeous color.

Holy unfurling leaves, Batman! I’m brand new to Oolongs, this is only my third, and each of them have been a unique experience… and I haven’t even gotten into the “good stuff” yet.

Being new to Oolong, I never really have any idea what the descriptions mean, so I’m often flying blind. I understand “scented” easily enough, but I have to ask… scented with what?

The dry leaves, rolled more tightly than anything I’ve ever steeped before, smelled very floral. Jasmine, maybe. It smells wonderful. After steeping, the scent mellows out a bit, and the flavor is kind of nectary. A bit fruity. It’s smooth and soft, and while I am under the impression that Oolongs can be creamier, this is one of the creamiest teas I’ve ever had.

I’ve never kissed a mermaid (merman?) but if the opportunity ever presents itself, I hope it’s like this. (Yeah, I said it.)

On twitter, A+D said it was lightly scented like an Earl Grey…but I don’t know if that means that it is scented with bergamot or not. I can’t wait to try it for myself and see if that is what I taste :)

codylynnclark

Interesting. I never caught that on Twitter. Thanks. I’m not really picking up anything particularly bergamont-like, though… Hmm.

JacquelineM

I think they are being mysterious!

Meghann M

Very mysterious! I caught something somewhere in the description last night that said seaweed. I was hoping it doesn’t taste like seaweed! (does it taste like seaweed)?

JacquelineM

Oh Meghann M I hope not!

codylynnclark

Not that I’m aware of… but there are all sorts of seaweed. Very few of which I have tasted.

Excellent detective work teabird!!! Thank you!

codylynnclark

Haha… thanks for coming back here to let us know. Mystery solved. :)

I was super-excited to see that the new A&D series featured an Assam… my favoritest of teas. I got my order last night, and waited patiently until the morning to try it out.

I held off on this review until my second cup, because the first just didn’t seem to have much to it. It’s a bit lighter than a few of the Assams I’ve tried. Still a good cup of tea, though. Definitely a smooth, mellow Assam.

I also think that I might not be tasting things properly this morning, so I may have to adjust my rating later on. I feel kind of… meh.

Yeah, I thought so too – he’s more mellow than I thought he’d be.

No sweetener today, but I’m still picking up an almost caramelized sugar aftertaste… which is awesome. Bumping up the rating the morning because I can’t remember why it was that low to begin with. Tastes change, I guess.
