From Tea & Ty

Ce oolong thaïlandais roulé issu du cultivar taïwanais Jinxuan (planté dans la région dans les années 90) est mélangé dés le début du processus de fabrication du thé avec une plante locale (Nuo Mi Xiang) au goût de riz gluant. Un des thés les plus étonnants depuis le Milky Oolong.

Il provient de la plantation de Doi Mae Salong ou Santikirhi (la colline de la paix) au nord du pays à la frontière birmane dans le célèbre "Triangle d’Or" où la culture du thé a totalement remplacé celle de l’opium. Située à 1500 m d’altitude elle fait partie des plantations soutenues par la "Royal Project Foundation".

La "Royal Project Foundation", association a but non-lucratif, fut créée en 1970 par Sa Majesté Bhumibol Adulyadej, roi de Thaïlande.

La fondation a pour objectif de lutter contre la déforestation, la culture de l’opium et la pauvreté en insérant socio-économiquement les tribus éxilées du Laos, de Birmanie et de Chine installées dans les montagnes du nord de la Thaïlande.

It seems this Oolong has a taste of glutinous rice as the Oolong has been mixed from the start of the manufacturing process with a local plant (Nuo Mi Xiang) which has a glutinous rice taste. This was indicated on Tea & Ty ’s website.

I open my cute little pink bag and I’m seeing quite a nice green rolled leaf. As I still have a cold the description of the leaf stops there, unfortunately.

The leaf does not unfold at the first infusion, which is logical with an infusion at less than 90 °c.

I get a pretty pale yellow-green liquor.

Fortunately I still have my taste buds skills to enjoy this tea: the texture is round without being mellow however.

Glutinous rice taste is there, a touch of lichen too but is also accompanied by a lighter note which is a fruity note. I would think plum, not sure but it tastes like plum to me.

The end of the sip is surprising, tea vanishes on a darker touch with a tiny bitterness which immediately disappears.

Surprising tea, really.
