Two-for-one review: I had this tea gongfu yesterday, and now I am drinking a cold brew of it.

I feel like both the cold brew of this tea and the gongfu bring out more oolongy character than the western steep of it. The buttery, snap pea flavors of it are joined by notes of apricot and a fruity sweetness. It really sets itself apart from the Laoshan green tea in these preparations. The iced tea is so delicious and refreshing! It seems like there is almost the lightest hint of roasting in it, but it may be just a buttery cooked-greens sensation. Quite tasty. Thanks again to MissB for sending this sample!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
