The smell of this delicate infusion reminds me of my grandmother’s home growing up – that sweet hit of cardamom…mmmm.

As a non-black tea drinker, and not that fussy, I generally like all non-black teas. So it’s hard for me to discern specifically the taste of oolong from brews of green and white with which I am familiar.

I like to brew my teas strong, often leaving the steeped tea in my mug while sipping on it.

Having said that, I found this tea to be light on the tastebuds and softly fragrant. I did break open the cardamom pod to release its tiny seeds before steeping (traditionally, we munch on cardamom pods like one would on chewing gum; it is used in just about every dessert), so this taste came through stronger than the rest.

Overall, a very warming, light, fragrant tea.

I have always loved and drank green, white, and herbal teas in their naked forms; I have a mild allergy to black teas despite my cultural tea roots; and I have recently formed a very loving relationship with concoctions from David’s Teas.
