Lucky dip of the morning. I had no real preference for type today so I thought why not? It’s a green type oolong and the leaves are a lovely green colour although it could be a bit deeper in hue, I think.

The dry leaf aroma is fresh and strong, but otherwise there isn’t really anything about it. It’s fairly typical for this type of tea. Same after steeping, really. Not quite as strong as in the dry leaf, but otherwise the notes are unchanged. Fresh, sweet and somewhat grassy.

Flavour, again fairly typical. Sweet and fresh, and I’m getting a rather strong apple note in it. A sweeter apple type, not the tart crispy ones that I tend to prefer for eating. Yes, apples and also a bit of grass, a touch of butter and something vaguely flowery on top.

This is not half bad, but also not super memorable for me. Green type oolongs do tend to flow together somewhat for me. I should practise tasting them more, I suppose.

Leaves smells sweet, flowery. They look a fit lighter than usually.

Tea also smells floral. Tastes the same. Gentle. Tasty.
This is a boring review…

Crisp, delicate high notes and a dainty floral ting ornament this tea. It is not unlike a mild and timid jasmine though the finish rolls downward into lush vegetation.

Akin to a fine brass bell, this one rings out clearly.
