Thank you so much for this sample! I would buy more often, though a lot of the teas they have that I prefer tend to be pricier. I wanted to try the Luxurious Jade sample, but reading some of the notes made me hesitate a little bit. So I ordered from them anyway for finding a good daily oolong. I bought two teas that definitely fit that description, and one that I got in five ounces that was pretty excellent. Looking at you, Winter Rhythm 2015.
So I got this one with great consideration. I pretty much think the exact same thing that Big Daddy does. It’s very light, clean, green, and crisp with a solid varieties of fluffy florals in a body of fresh spinach. It did get me a little bit of a buzz bordering on tea drunk that was pretty nice-though that would be the main reason why I’d buy from Taiwan Sourcing-they’re jade’s have a better tendency to get me tea drunk.
If only I could find a sweeter oolong with strong fruit, florals, body, and honey notes for a daily price. A sample of this brings a smile on my face, however, for its clarity and lack of astringency. Just a little too grassy, but just sweet enough.
For those reading this, this is a very green oolong. For those who have never had oolong but like green tea, this is not a bad place to start because a lot of the greens and florals apply to the broad spectrum of this tea.
