I’ve had this for quite some time, and I finally got around to brewing it. The brick is teeny tiny, but it packs a lot leaf. I warmed my gaiwan up and popped this sucker in. I could only pick up a fruity pipe tobacco scent along with a deep roast, but the scent faded very quickly. I had to wash this about four times until it finally began yielding some good liquor. The brew was a thick red color. The weird thing about this tea is an odd freshwater or lakewater fish scent that kept creeping in. Then, it would quickly be covered by roast and some sweet fruit. The brew itself was full bodied and smooth. This was not an overly roasted flavor, for it went down without any bitterness. The brew followed this pattern consistently, and it ended each sip with a nice crisp sweetness. I liked this brew, and the nice texture helped me overlook the odd fishy scent. The best part was the qi. This brew packed a heavy hitter that went straight for the head. This drink gave a deep pulsing head high with some warming of the temples. I had to take a break and eat some bread to return to the table. I was able to pull a fairly good amount of steeping from this, especially for being a yancha. I liked this tea, but this is not something I’d get more of.

I’ve been curious about White 2 Tea myself in general, especially their oolongs. My biggest hesitation is the cost of shipping.

Haveteawilltravel

Yeah, I usually only place large orders when I go through them. Also, they specialize in puerh, so I’d keep that in mind when eyeing oolong with. However, I’ve only had a few of their oolong offerings and they were fairly good. I’ve been wanting to try the clover patch simply because of the mass of reviews and the “incredible aroma”.

Haveteawilltravel

I highly recommend them for Puerh. It’s some of favorite.

That’s what I normally do with companies. Plus I have the recommendations that you and Oolong Owl put up. Haveteawilltravel, I’ve been tempted to try clover patch myself.

Haveteawilltravel

right?? I mean the reviews are just raving about “this smells sooo good”, so I’m not sure if it’s just a buzz monthly club, or if its the real deal.

I couldn’t find this tea on White2Tea’s website but it came in the monthly pkg Christina and I are sharing. When she sent it to me I almost missed the tiny tiny tiny (yes tiny!) little brick. They say this size is very deceptive. No kidding. I think this tea swelled about 4 or 5 times it’s size. Maybe more.

Supposedly this tea is roasted, then aged , then re-roasted and pressed into a brick.

I found it extremely smooth and roasted. Very full bodied tea. Very dark. I got plenty of infusions from this tea. Probably could have gotten more.

This is a good tea for those that love a full bodied, dark , roasted tea. Although, it was good, it just wasn’t the type of tea I would want very often since I prefer the lighter teas.

I really liked this one. Reminded me of a good whiskey. Wish I could buy more.
