Recent Tasting Notes
I stopped in Oolong Flower Power when I was in Dublin last summer. What a lovely shop! They have so many teas along a wall that runs the length of the shop – it was a bit overwhelming and exciting.
Anyways, the tea. It has the traditional Irish Cream flavour, but the flavourings aren’t too strong and I can still taste the black tea leaves. This blend is creamy and delicious.
I’ve recently tried this tea and found it has very mild smooth taste, a little bit milky. This milky taste is not a matter of adding milk onto your tea but it’s so natural that it seems to be the part of the tea. I like drinking it in the morning as it helps me to wake up and get little positive (especially early in the Monday morning ;D)
Flavors: Earth, Flowers, Milk
I discovered shortly after exploring oolongs that I’m not a fan. I just don’t get them, which seems like a loss when reading the enjoyment other people find in them. Not one for learning lessons the first time, I’m back years later for another cup of this tea… while listening to Propagandi. It seemed like a good morning for angry political skate punk music.
This tea smells fantastic dry and steeped. There is a light sweetness on top of some creamy notes. It is like tea candy in scent. I can taste those things on the sip. Creamy sweetness at the front of the sip, but it goes a little flat and cardboard like (which is the dominating trait I get from oolongs) towards the end. If I sip a little faster the flatness is skipped. Maybe that is the way to go? Chug it? The aftertaste is the same as the sip with the nice light flavors lingering. This is pretty good in my experiences with oolongs. Could this be my gateway oolong?!
When I was in Dublin last year, I was scouring the area for tea shops and came across Oolong Flower Power. They had hundreds of jars of tea to choose from and I took two selections home. All the tea is under their shop name. I asked the guy working at the counter about it and he said they have a vendor who they buy all their tea and coffee from, so I get the impression that they don’t do any blending or flavoring themselves and that these teas may be available by other companies who buy from the same vendor.
Anyways, onto the tea itself! I think I overleafed this tea a bit in my effort to use up the last of the tea that didn’t fit into the tin, but it seems to have turned out alright! I’m not familiar with milk oolongs (or regular oolongs for that matter) so I’m not quite sure what to expect. The first sip tasted slightly floral to me. It is extremely smooth and creamy… almost buttery, a taste that is pronounced after each sip. There is also a slight after sensation as if I drank something grassy even tho I don’t really taste grass in the sip. I’ll have to update later as I resteep, but so far it’s really nice!
