Sipdown, 122. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve had an oriental beauty, so I am interested in seeing how this one plays on my newly dark-oolong-sympathetic palate.
The scent has a kind of fruity floral that I sometimes find in black teas, perhaps darjeelings, surprisingly enough. It’s not a fruity floral that I’m super fond of, but we’ll see how it plays out here. Fortunately for me, the scent doesn’t quite translate into the taste. This has a super smooth and creamy texture that is really awesome. It’s not really roasty or toasted, and it’s not particularly vegetal either. Honey for sure, and a breadiness like a yeasty, crusty loaf straight out of the oven. A hint of fruit as well, although it’s subtle for sure. Definitely enjoying this one, and glad to try it out again!
