1137 Tasting Notes
1st Steep – Medium body, hint of spice, crisp, creamy, lemon?, a little bit of astringency in the aftertaste which I hope doesn’t become more defined with more steepings
2nd Steep – A lot more fruity (apples), still smooth overall
3rd Steep – Still holding up!
Maybe I’m just used to drinking these Taiwanese oolongs now but I didn’t really get the “milk” flavor this time, or at least more than any of the others I’ve been drinking. I’ll have to try Rui Feng Jin Xuan again but I think that was my favorite of the milk oolongs (though it was also the FIRST of the samples I tried…)
This tea honestly didn’t do anything for me.. after a while I just didn’t want to drink it anymore. I’ve enjoyed the other samples so far and feel bad because this one was the most expensive. I don’t know if I would take my review to heart, maybe it’s just personal/I brewed it wrong?
Out of the 4 teas I’ve tasted since I received my sampler packs, this one has stood out the most! Well, I have to admit rui feng did also since it was my first milk oolong.. but this tea is awesome. It is really full-bodied and after the first few sips I immediately felt like I had to write a comment about it =) It actually tastes a bit milky too!
Edit: Going to bump this down some, the 2nd and third steeps were just no where near as awesome as the first =( 1st steep = 93 rating = omg bliss i might just buy it for the first steeping anyways
