I think this is my second note on this one. I wanted a stronger flavor, so I double-leafed this one. When I do that, a slight bitterness comes out. I added a bit of rock sugar, and OH MY GOD it tastes like fresh peach slices. This tea… I don’t know what I’ll do for Oriental Beauty when my Tea Setter runs out. I can’t imagine anything matching this one, though I’m holding out hope that my sample from Lulu will be this good.

Flavors: Apricot, Peach

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.
