Lewis & Clark Traveling Teabox – Tea #9
This isn’t the highest rated oolong… maybe it doesn’t deliver what it promises. It isn’t so much a milk oolong to me as it is very savory: kind of salty and a bit tough. Kind of seaweed/marine like. It’s so brothy and buttery it could be used as a soup. Again it could be a problem with too many leaves/steep time. But the instructions did say to use boiling water for this one. I’m glad I didn’t. I didn’t even use a rinse this time for some reason. Savory oolongs are very nice on their own and I can appreciate the different flavors once in a while but they don’t seem to be for me.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 tsps. // 12 min after boiling // 2 1/2 min
Steep #2 // 12 min after boiling // 3 min

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
