drank Rou Gui Oolong by Cultivate Tea
2290 tasting notes

This is good, but definitely not a daily drinker for me. I would buy again, but only in small amounts as a fun treat. It’s toasty, mineraly, spicy.

I’ll probably only have a couple steps of this. Here’s hoping it’s not an oolong that triggers my gut issues!

Edit: this was an oolong that triggered my gut issues. I expect a few more like this as I have several oblongs in my tasting basket.

These could be tricky to figure out nuances if blended. My first non-teabag was pure shui hsien and since then I tasted lots of so called da hang pao that were actually different measures of both. Rougui from phoenix oolong are definitely worth exploring as it is like Italian tomatoes replanted in Greece or something, great fun at the very least. Some clayware is more suited oolongs of specific roast as well but that’s a different realm of alchemy.
