From Curious Tea

Mao Xie Hairy Crab Oolong is a wonderfully refreshing tea from Anxi County of Fujian Province. Rolled green leaves produce a pale golden lightly aromatic liquor. The crisp floral and citrus character has notes of yuzu, sweet melon and buttered greens.

Sipdown! (12 | 380)

I got a sample pouch of this from the Tea Thoughts summer countdown box that I did last month, and decided to cold brew it (since that’s all I drink these days…).

It’s so lovely and refreshing, with a subtle creamy stonefruit note as well as fresh cucumber and honeydew melon. There’s also a sparkling minerality present, which is sort of a given for me with green oolongs. Perhaps some light starchy vegetal notes, like edamame or lima beans. I taste a definite floral character as well, though not enough to ruin it for me. It’s a lighter floral, like honeysuckle. Honestly, I would love to do some sort of workshop on floral notes to learn to distinguish them better…

Anyway, it’s lovely cold, and so refreshing for these hot summer days in Austin. Plus the name makes me smile!

I’d like to do a workshop like that as well, especially since I gravitate toward very floral teas.
