Brilliant. This is the type of Oolong I love. Truly. Bright and friendly. The kind that if it was a person, their smile would light up a room. Grassy sunshine in a cup.
The package says there are dandelion notes in here. Suddenly I have a new appreciation for the scraggly weeds. I had no idea what they tasted like, but if this odd floral note is it, I want to collect all the dandelions and find recipes they work in. People make dandelion salad, right?
Heck, there’s a good chance they’d be organic, if I get them before anyone sprays to kill’em. I mean, nobody wants to preserve them, and lack of pesticides is what makes up “organic”, for the most part, isn’t it?
Sorry for the ramble. I’m on the first steep so this review may expand shortly!
My only qualm is that this tea is quite expensive.

western brew today and while this was a pleasant cup – slightly malty, a little bit of mineral and just over smooth and tasty, there are other teas out there i’d prefer to pick up that are a little less expensive.

mmmmm this was a shared purchase from the toronto tea festival between Cavocorax and i. I’m only just now getting a chance to try it out, but i swore she had it before me. Seems like steepster ate her note or i’m imagining things. :)

I’ve been brewing this gonfu this afternoon….im’ not getting a citrus note…just a sweet mineral like note that turns almost cocoa-y…maybe? I think i need a few more steepings..haha more to come but i’m happy with this pick from zhen tea!

Cavocorax

I did! I swear I even added it to the system? I remember I did it as a gongfu style cup and it really, REALLY, tasted like mushrooms. So savory and weird. It took a few cups (in our new teaware!) to get that to calm the heck down and taste better.

ok phew…glad i wasn’t imagining things..

Picked this adorable tea up at the Toronto Tea Festival – my only purchase there, in fact! (Go me!) I just couldn’t resist green oolong pressed into a little tiny square cake.

Anyhow, I found this tea to be pretty enjoyable. A bit frustrating to steep, because it was too large for my infuser, and the water didn’t cover it all, but the flavour was good. Smooth, creamy, fresh-tasting oolong, with some floral notes, but not a dominant flavour. Again, more detail to come in future notes when I have a life again.
