From Art of Tea

TASTING NOTES: AGED BOURBON, HONEY, ORANGE BLOSSOM, SPICE

Grown and harvested in Fujian, China at a garden elevation of 1500m and straight into your morning cup. This Chinese oolong tea is 90% oxidized and steeps dark amber in color with smooth, sweet flavor notes of honey and aged bourbon and a finish of orange blossom and spice.

This is another tea that I don’t have a date for in my spreadsheet. It was a gift from a friend – she regularly orders one specific tea from Art of Tea and I think this was included as a sample, so she gave it to me. It’s in an adorable little mini tin!

This is pretty scrumptious. Lovely thick and sweet cinnamon honey notes that remind me of a Taiwanese black tea, though this is from Fujian. Perhaps the tiniest bit of a syrupy dried fruit, like fig or date. There’s chewy thick bread and malt, backed by some dry autumn leaf and tobacco. I also taste a touch of molasses, especially at the end of the sip. There’s also a woodiness that makes me think of whiskey barrels. A floral note appears in the aftertaste and lingers long on the tongue.

This is really reminding me of a Taiwanese black tea, and given it’s 90% oxidized, I suppose it’s not far off. I’ll happily sip down this small amount, but wouldn’t reorder this one given the exorbitant price. Plus I tend to order straight teas from more specialized vendors…

Taiwanese black teas are just my favourite. ❤ Plus fig/date? It sounds divine!
