mmm this is a really nice lightly roasted oolong with no metallic or mineral notes. Some grain and malt notes, a slight bit of creamy flavour (similar to Jing Xuan/milk oolong). I accidentally oversteeped it and it still came up sweet and not bitter.

One of the teas I still have from the apparently now defunct IDEStea. Pretty solid green Taiwanese oolong. Doesn’t get too vegetal or chlorophyll tasting. It does better with 185F than boiling. It starts off with mostly floral notes, but at about three steeps in picks up a pleasant melon aftertaste. The body is silky and smooth. Towards the end of the session, the melon note becomes more cucumber.

Cream, radish, spinach, carrots, it’s an interesting creaminess though, like whip cream, it’s pretty sweet, cucumber, what’s more though is that after the beginning, it’s really boring. It’s exactly what you think of when you think of oolongs. It’s a solid tea, pleasant, very drinkable, but yeah it’s not interesting, it’s definitely aptly described by idestea.
