I LOVE the color of these leaves – dry! The aroma is a bit ‘odd’ but not in a bad way…it reminds me of plugging an old heater in after it’s been sitting a while and you get that charred-dust smell Even more ‘odd’ is that once infused the aroma morphs completely! It smells more like FRESH home-grown veggies! Ahhhh! Airy and breezy!

The color is SUPER Bright Yellow – Brilliantly Yellow! LOVE IT!

The flavor – SMOOTH…fresh, airy, clean, somewhat crisp, a little vegetal-sweet!

This is MARVYLOVING this!

OK, lets see…

Leaves are of darkish green color.And it smells like it’s been drying in a warehouse for quite some time. Really dry.
Tea is gentle, bright and the flavor is quite delicious. Subtle and smooth, grassy and even more nutty.

As master Yoda would say: smooth and yummy this one is.

malomorgen! I just want to let you know that even though I have hardly been on steepster in the past year or so — anytime I’ve seen a fish on teaware I’ve thought of you! :D

Think that this is my last sample of tea from Mandy. Took over a month to finish the birthday package she so generously sent me!
From what I’ve tried of teas from this company, I’ve not really been a huge fan. They all seem kinda too light and unflavorful to me-almost like they’re all just old. :/
This one was one of the better teas I’ve tried from this place. But even so, it still didn’t have a lot of flavor. It was roasty with a touch of floral, which is always appreciated.
Just wish it had been stronger all around. Would have been so much better.
But always happy to try another oolong.
Thanks for the sample, Mandy! (:

This is a generous sample provided by Life in Teacup. Thanks!
Dry, this tea is in nugget form, in shades of jade, forest, & other appealing greens with a sweet Nectar of the Gods aroma of yellow spring flowers. When warmed, add butter to that.

I gave it a rinse & went with 20 second steepings, immediately it was sweet rain water, in a forest with lots of Orchids. Over the next couple of steeps the sweetness grew, as did the floral, sort of like an aromatherapy bubble bath, but not too soapy or anything like that.
Other impressions, as I continued down the steeping path:
Very fresh & spring-like, like fresh linens drying in the sun.
Beautiful iridescent green leaf
Fresh Green beans with their flowers
Tongue Tingle
Long beans, also with their flowers

I haven’t been drinking my oolong teas much lately. No real reason, just too much tea & not enough time, I guess, LOL.

Lovely review! Rain water, forests and orchids. I’m sold!
