I’m not 100% sure this is the correct tea listing. I was given a sample by mtchyg that says “Xing Ren Xiang Almond Oolong” on it, so I’m going to go ahead and plunk it right here.

This lovely tea comes in really long twists. One of them I measured at 3", though most of them are around 1-1.5" long. The color is pleasantly green.

In my steeper, they only partially unfurled. I left them in there, hoping they’d come open a little more, but they clung fast. Alas, the show was not to be had today.

That said, this is a sweet little number. It tastes a little bit like matcha, but not gross. (Matcha is my Last Horizon. I’m going to love it one of these days. Mark my words.) This tea tastes mostly like green, with a little bit of crispy nut, and a dash of what I’d describe as… bark?

It’s not like I sit around munching bark off trees. I don’t technically have any firsthand bark experience.

It’s just a feeling. Bark.

EITHER YOU’RE WITH ME OR YOU’RE NOT.

If you’d like a light romp through a sun-dappled late-afternoon forest, give this tea a whirl.

I see your Bark. And raise you a Ruff. DO YOU GET IT??? IT IS A DOUBLE PUN HOLY SHIT I WIN THE STUFF AND THINGS TODAY!
