From the oolong group buy -
I should drink these before they get much older. Probably should have used a gaiwan not my 12oz pot for this – oh well, next time
Dry leaf – smells sharp, soft
200F, 2 min: soft, wood, fruity aftertaste, coating
as it cools – more vegetal and a little drying, aftertaste changes to more a sharp vegetal, green, but hint of fruit
Not sure what to think of this tea, though I have enough to try it several ways.

Flavors: Drying, Fruity, Green, Vegetal, Wood

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
