Went to Whole Foods today and found a small bulk tea selection. I’m not a super big oolong fan, but was curious as to why this tea was almost $100 a pound so I came home with two servings worth. I’m on my second steeping. It was a little grassy tasting at first, but the more I sip, the more that fades. A little hay in the front of the sip. It is well rounded and has a slightly sweet feel, but not quite sweet taste. There is one part of the sip that has a hint of flatness that I attribute to oolongs, but it passes quickly. The aftertaste has a hint of caramel. This is probably the most I have enjoyed a non flavored oolong, but I’m still not wowed by it. I imagine others who have the palate for oolongs would find it much more interesting. If this was an Irish whiskey, I’d probably be really into the flavors. Oolong soaked Irish whiskey? Hmmmm…. that is something to ponder.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
