drank Dan Cong by thepuriTea
328 tasting notes

This was a delightful oolong. It is my first Dan Cong and I think this could be one of my favorites. It is bold flavor w/o an obvious roasting flavor. There were some subtle honey and fruity notes.
Until I re-read this descrption (after drinking), I did not realize this oolong was flavored w/osmanthus. I think I want to try some others that are not flavored w/osmanthus. At longer steeping times, this tea had a definite pucker that could have been contributed by the osmanthus.

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
