Aptly named! From the very first brew, you can taste both butterery and floral flavors. Both are strong yet oddly complementing. In addition, there’s a perfume like aftertaste that I’ve never tasted before!
As a steeped more, the floral flavor became stronger and the butter moved more into the background. The floral perfume aftertaste is still sharp.
It gets to the point that I find it unbelievable that this oolong isn’t scented… it kind of taste like a strong jasmine oolong!
Overall, very interesting tea. I don’t like it more than Taiwanese oolong (my favorite) because I found the sharp floral aftertaste a bit off-putting. Definitely worth a try though.
