Recent Tasting Notes


Picked this one up on a trip to Scandinavia, too many (almost 5) years ago. I know, I know. I am trying my damndest to get through my oldest teas and I think I see the light at the end of this tunnel of shame. This was stored in its original sealed envelope, so when I opened it, it smelled exactly like I remembered. A very vanilla scented milky oolong – so different I needed to try it. That day in Stockholm was a freaky 90 degrees and the tea house had no A/C, so no way was I going to go in to have some hot tea and cake. I decided to just buy a small amount to try once I got home. Fast forward to…this morning! Not the typical milky oolong. Yes, it’s scented, but most milky oolongs are. Very vanilla forward, but with a vegetal note from the oolong. Really pleasant tea, sweeter than other milky oolongs I’ve tried. I will have no problem finishing this now that I’ve opened it.

“Tunnel of shame” LOLOL We have all been there. (Some of us never left.)

This is a wonderful Ceylon Nuwara Eliyah – nice and bright, with a honey-like sweetness to it. It’s the flavor that most represents “tea” to me, and comfort as well. Awesome with milk, even more awesome with a tiny bit of sweetener. Purchased from a charming little tea house in Stockholm with a limited online presence, so when it’s finished, that’s it unless I go back. I’ll enjoy it to the very last.
