drank Red Water Oolong by Liquid Proust Teas
1313 tasting notes

From a group buy, how long ago now.

I like to brew this long, otherwise I find the flavor too light. A resinous-bready undertone and mineral baked plum-apricot-quince midtone are greeted by the forward honey-caramel-redfruit sweetness and muted floral nature that roasted oolong can have. The aftertaste reminds strongly of black grape skins. Brewing this long brings out a tongue-numbing and tingly bitter-tannic quality that may put others off but I find it especially satisfying in the moment. Gently grounding energy this evening, much needed after a morning at work where I thought for sure my head was going to spin right off.

I most enjoy loose-leaf, unflavored teas and tisanes. Always on the lookout for teas from countries and regions not commonly known for tea production or those that are not well represented in the western market. I seek these teas to gain an understanding, however vague, of how this plant performs in different climates.
