I received this tea from the regional oolong group buy, and upon opening was struck by the lovely floral and honey scent of the dry leaves. I brewed it in a kyusu 30 seconds at a time and it had a lovely floral aroma that did indeed smell like orchids (one in particular I had smelled at the Denver botanical gardens but cannot remember the name of)

The liquor has the color of a very clear piece of amber, and has a nectar like consistency and taste. Heavy on the sugarcane and flowers. Throughout two liters of water the tea held a good taste that mostly remained the same trading off viscosity for minerality in later steeps and finally quitting after steeping with boiling water for 15 or so minutes.

This tea actually put Nepali Tea Traders on my list of companies I would like to order more tea from.

I am a trained Cicerone (Beer sommelier) attempting to transfer my palette and skills to the tea world.

I have been enjoying tea for well over a decade, and more recently have come across my true passion for tea. I love learning about the culture, history, production, cultivation, and most importantly enjoyment of the beverage itself.

My favorite tea is black followed by sheng then oolong so far.

So far my favorite terroir is Jingmai with Yiwu a close second.
