I am loving this one. Such a nice blend of creamy sweet floral goodness! I wish I had more of it. Thanks Daylon for the sample. So good and helping me thru the afternoon!

Sipdown #24!

TeaNTees

You’re doing so well Nichole! :)

Marzipan

Can I count all of the teas that I sold as sip downs? :D

TeaNTees

If it was all that you had remaining of each specific tea then I say yes!

Nichole/CuppaGeek

Aww, Thanks my dear! 24 in a week (ish) isn’t too bad.

& yes Marzi- I think you can!

Terri HarpLady

Rocking the sip downs!!
Samples definitely count, and BTW, samples from friends count as the bulk of my Sipdown Extravaganzas.

Daylon R Thomas

I have a little more that I could send if you like.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

Oh. . Daylon I may need you to send that to me here in a bit. . .

Daylon R Thomas

Okay, will do. I’m going to see what else I can throw in because the amount I have is probably three light cups worth at most.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

No worries. Take your Time. I’ll start working on another box for you too.

I went to go get some to split for you two… but then I realized that it’s the one and only tea I’ve sold out it. That shows how aware I am :/

Nichole/CuppaGeek

I actually went to your site to buy more and noticed that. It’s alright. I still have more of your tea I need to drink up first. Then I need to get that French Toast one.

I’ve been waiting a while in huge anticipation…… Thank you so much, LiquidProust for your heavenly offering of oolongs. I’m going to write a lot more about that later and in every post.

I was pretty curious about this one because I like sweet rose and creamy things. It also so happened to be an oolong. Then I hesitated a bit because it was a phoenix oolong, which in my experience tend to be fruity, but a little to light. Then, I figured, it would definitely be worth to try, and it’s something that can do to help LiquidProust.

So, now to describe this tea-or over describe it. The scent is highly feminine, like walking into a Chinese Beauty Shop. Cream blushed with with roses and little bits and pieces of fruit welcome me. David Bowie’s China Girl Plays in the back ground.

Then I steep it for 2 minutes and 35 seconds. Dainty. Very dainty, and very light. A little too light for me, but enjoyable and very clean. I get the rose and cream, but barely.

I steep it a second time for about 4 minutes. More rose, more cream, still as girly as ever. There’s an apricot sweetness at the end.

Third steep for five: rose and cream combine into something lighter and more floral.

Fourth steep after six: really faint. I’m going to have to leave it for longer to see if I can get any more out of it. I know it’s oversteeping, but I’ve been able to savor some last bits of an oolong before.

Okay, so overall, this is a really delicate, clean, and very womanly tea. This is something that I think white tea lovers and floral tea lovers would like. For me, it’s way too delicate. I used a little less than two tea spoons in seven ounces, then six ounces. I got the stronger bit on the latter, and a part of me wonders if I needed more leaves for my tastes.

For the time it is right now, it’s a perfect summer tea. It’s refreshing, light, and probably good iced as well. Also has little bitterness and not nearly as dehydrating as some other teas I’ve had. I’m definitely going to pass this tea along, and share it. :)

This is one of those teas that only a few people will have the ability to purchase because I stocked up on other base teas and got others to play with (like this one)

This is also my first attempt at putting some cream in a tea :)
