drank Brown Sugar by Tea Leaf Co
79 tasting notes

This is the first oolong I’ve legit enjoyed. Honestly I started avoiding them because I often get this (for lack of a better word) “plasticky” aftertaste from them. I don’t have that here though, huzzah! Might be that I prefer darker oolongs, since I think my previous ones have all been fairly pale, so I’ll have to try more and see.

Anyway, the dry leaf smells amazing, I stood in the kitchen huffing the bag for perhaps a little longer than I care to admit. Dry leaf also looks very pretty with the bright safflower petals. The tea itself is lightly sweet, not in your face about it, just pleasantly mapley with a slight nuttiness. I added a bit of honey after the initial taste because I’m a honey fiend, but really, it was fine without it.

I’m mostly on a mission to try ALL THE BLACK TEA at the moment. When I do venture out of my niche, it’s mostly to dabble in pu-erh and roasted anythings.

Annnd mostly to keep myself consistent…

1-40: Ptoo ptoo!
41-60: Eh. Could do with or without.
61-70: Mm. Good but probably won’t get more.
71-85: Yum! Would keep a bit around!
86-100: ((incoherent slavering))
