I’m unsure why I chose this tea out of everything I have available to me, but I did.
Tonight I am flooded by emotions and I fear they will keep me up. This weekend was great as I was able a good friend stayed for a few days. It has been 5 years since I have seen him… it was a clear reminder of how often I have moved throughout my life and how unstable my friendships are. Every few years it seems as if I am somewhere new and start to lose communication with old friends. Anyways, tea:
Tealux/Tealyra has been hit or miss with me so far. Thankfully this tea is a hit :)
The smell does not lead on to what is about to be tasted. This brews one smooth cup that would be classified as medium on a scale of light to dark. What makes this tea above ‘good’ is the mouth feel and how it goes down. Unlike a teiguanyin (or most of them that is) this tea warms up my body and I feel it from the mouth and down. Sensations linger in my mouth from the tea and I don’t want to take another drink for a good minute to savor the feeling as it slowly fades.
I’ll be looking for more oolongs like this.The stems with green leaves are the most beautiful as they have two full leaves on them and the dark brown ones look like burnt cabbage…
