2 Tasting Notes

The flavor of the tea is similar to a soup broth that tastes of seaweed and popcorn. The rice adds a hot breakfast cereal flavor to the tea that adds depth to its body. It has a vegetal flavor but it’s very light and feels clean.

A short brew time keeps the flavor light in crisp and a longer time brings out the astringency. This tea has a very distinct style. It’s very interesting to notice that there’s rice brewing alongside of my tea leaves. I find the idea very novel. I tried adding a splash of cream to a cup and it only became more interesting. This peaceful and inspiring tea would brighten up any sunny winter breakfast.

I went running one night in the winter during a rain but I ran so long that it stopped raining. On my way back home, I had to cross a field which smelled of wet earth and fresh grass and it mixed with waves of burning firewood from a chimney that burned in the far distance. All I could visualize while running through that field was a memory of drinking an oolong sample a few years back at a Teavana when I didn’t even know what oolong was. Ever since then, I longed for the next time I could sit down and enjoy a real cup of oolong tea. Choosing one from everything that was available was not easy. I found Mountain Rose Herbs and liked them overall and realized they don’t have many reviews on here. So I ordered a few of their teas and now I’m going to embark on a journey of tea palate self discovery.
