From Norbu Tea

Harvest: Winter, 2011
Varietal: Yu Lan Xiang (Magnolia Blossom Fragrance)
Origin: Wudong Mtn, Chaozhou Pref., Guangdong
Plantation Altitude: /-1,640’ (/-500 M)
10 Gram Sample Available

Overview:
Fenghuang Dan Cong oolong is a category of oolong unique to the Chaozhou area of Guangdong province. Interestingly, and perhaps a bit confusingly for those new to the tea of this region, most of the tea varietals grown in the Fenghuang/Phoenix Mountain area are considered Shui Xian varietal tea trees (same name as the more famous Wu Yi mountain varietal), but the different sub-varieties are named after the huge array of aromas the different trees produce when their leaves are processed. In this case, the varietal used in the production of this tea is known as Yu Lan Xiang, or Magnolia Blossom Fragrance.

Flavor and Aroma:
As the name suggests, the aroma of this tea is remarkably similar to a fresh magnolia blossom. It comes across as intensely magnolia-floral and bittersweet with a distinctive “green” bitterness in the background. This particular batch has a slight hint of coconut in the finish, which adds an interesting element to this otherwise extremely floral & bittersweet tea.

I’m not in a great mood today because it looks like the BF and I have broken up for good, I am feeling very sad but I think it is actually for the best if we just go our separate ways.

I have noticed one thing I enjoy about tea is the ability it has to ground me and provide me with something pleasant to look forward to. I’m revisiting this sample today and it is very light and pleasant. Somehow I am not feeling much bitterness in this tea, only a light floral taste with a hint of coconut.

Ajahn Chah has written a book called “Everything Arises, Everything Falls Away: Teachings on Impermanence and the End of Suffering”. It was a great book that got me through my divorce so I think I will spend some time reading it today and try to do some quiet things.

I might need to get more of this tea, just for helping me out through a painful time. ;)

Sorry to hear that – break ups are always hard, even if they are for the best. Chin up!

Scott B

Very sorry to hear that. I hope you are feeling better soon.

You know, I was listening to some songs entitled “4th of July” today and they are all depressing. Strange.

Scott B – my daughter works for a country radio station – this station today is playing all the music for our Spirit of the 4th Festival going on at the lake. My daughter runs the sound board for this. Today ALL the music IS in fact VERY depressing! What the heck??

Amy – I am so sorry to hear this but your right it is probably for the best. You now have the future wide open for a much better one!

Indigobloom
