107 Tasting Notes
After tasting a lot of teas today (17), with only a few that were good, I kinda needed a tea to make me sigh in happiness.
So I reached for this sample from Dustin :)
I have never had this before but thought a Rishi EG can’t be bad.
It is a reserved EG. But that is fine with me. Flavor was a bit muted but it seemed dignified that way :)
ok, im a little surprised by the current ratings but maybe the other (10+) teas i tried with this with werent all that good that is why this one stood out (with a couple others)
it is sweet and tasted fine enough while warm. it didnt get to the cool stage because i brewed only small samples haha
but this is good. thanks Kasumi for this sample! wanting to try other plum oolongs :)
For the record, this is my first ever milk oolong. And I am not (yet) a fan of green tea (coz it easily gets bitter when I steep it) or the vegetal taste (tho I like matcha and jasmine tea).
BUT this…tastes a bit vegetal..and it is buttery….oh so buttery! From the scent it exudes upon steeping up to the nth steep that I was able to squeeze out of it. I love it so! I imagine I can be happy drinking this for days on end.
