drank Wenshan Baochong Oolong by Tea Ave
2090 tasting notes

This is the most floral of the three oolongs I’ve tried from Tea Ave. Big spinachy leaves; nice bronze velvet color and texture. It smells like Mom’s lilac bush, and the taste is close, too. Nice cup of spring when all about me is muddy, cindery, snow slush.

This is not the one I’d choose for a Tea Ave rerun, I think—that’d probably be the Dong Ding—but that’d due to personal preference, not to the excellence of the oolong! Those of you with more delicate palates than me will likely love this.

Thank you for trying all three samples from us, gmathis!! We are glad at least you find something you’re interested in among the three, they just have different characteristics, and they may also surprise you in cold brew!! We would like to invite you to take a minute to transfer your reviews to our website under the product pages where others can see your comments and thoughts. It will really help us a lot :) Cheers.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
