Sipdown!

I did terrible unspeakable things to this tea in order to drink it. Maybe I’ll revisit roasted oolong later in life… For now, the roasted flavour is too much for me, even with a thorough rinse and dumping the first handful of steeps. I’m sorry XD

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Honey, Nutty, Roasted Barley

Have you tried other roasted oolong? There are diff level of roasts. 3 roast is very drinkable and after couple years is smooooooth

Yeah, I’ve tried various types of roasts levels although never mindfully; Teavivre and Verdant have thrown me a few samples here and there. I think I’ve had bad luck with them; maybe I’ll learn to enjoy them one day.

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Subjective Rating System 3.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. I’ll impulsively buy in large quantities and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. I’ll try to keep this one around when it’s practical.

76-84: A good tea, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Alright, but I may have a few problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Average to mediocre cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, the unholy abomination that is a chimera. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
