drank Oolong Tea by Yamamotoyama
1719 tasting notes

I don’t log my teas daily as I tend to have a few favorites I drink over and over. This is currently my second most brewed tea. I have only seen it in bag form. I don’t care that it is dust. It is just plain good. It is also very forgiving. I can use boiling water or much cooler water. I can steep two minutes or fifteen. It has a smokiness that is not like ashes but more like a campfire. It is subtle but present. This oolong has a forest floor taste about it that is quite pleasing and complex. Other grocery store blends don’t even come close. I have heard this tea comes from Brazil – I can’t verify it so maybe not but it does not taste like any other brand I have tried. It tastes great hot and at room temperature. Never tried iced but imagine I would like it. While one bag won’t do two infusions, I find I can use two bags together for a second cup – ok really a third cup since it takes two bags.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
