Really nice tea. Wet leaves smell of tobacco leaves and ripe apricots. Probably my favorite of the oolongs I’ve tried so far. Tastes slightly sweet and fruity. I’ll have more to say as I drink more of it. Just mainly wanted to remind myself that I’d buy this again. :) Steeped 15 seconds, then 30, etc. It’s on the black tea-like end of oolongs, but with none of the bitterness you get with some black teas. Has a very mild, bright, fruity flavor — I’ll add a few more leaves next time.

Flavors: Apricot, Fruity, Sweet, Tea, Tobacco

1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I drink black and oolong teas — and am trying to learn a little about puerh these days. I’m in it for the taste, not the appropriated Eastern mysticism. Not so good at keeping my cupboard up to date, let alone making a tea spreadsheet. I don’t really do sipdown reviews because then I’d be judging the tea based on the dust at the bottom of the bag. I think it’s nifty that there are tens of thousands of options involving just this one plant leaf.
