Tea Swap Sample Sipdown of the Day! (14)

This is the very last tea from my swap with AJRimmer. Sorry it took me so long to try them all! This is why I’ve started committing to one swap tea sipdown each day. :P

This is an interesting oolong with strong mineral notes. It’s actually somewhat similar to gunpowder green tea, which has a heavily mineral flavor with earthy smoke elements. This tea does not have the vegetal character of a green tea, however.

I assume this tieguanyin is at least partially baked, as it has a mellow, comforting roasty flavor that is not overwhelming, as well as a golden liquor. There is a light hay-like mustiness here as well, which reminds me of bai mudan. It does have the classic silky mouthfeel and floral nectar notes that I expect from a green oolong, and a hint of fuzzy apricot at the end of the sip.

What an interesting tea, with aspects of green and white teas as well as oolong. I happen to enjoy mineral notes in lighter teas, so I quite like it! :)
