Ok, more thoughts on this, although I have a feeling my rating and thoughts may change a little more tomorrow as well. I am not getting the silky mouthfeel you can get from some oolongs, nor any of the creamy or buttery flavor. (And yes, I totally feel like a poser saying mouthfeel) What I am getting is a lot of light floral tones and a hint of fruit. Sweet but dry. This is yummy, but isn’t my favorite oolong ever. What I want to try tomorrow is to resteep with more leaf/less water and a shorter time (the package recommends 5 minutes, which just feels long. Who knows. If I change the parameters, I may like it more. :)

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
