From Camellia Sinensis

Produced in Taiwan, Jin Shuan is the original “cream wulong”.

This cultivar is single handedly responsible for the explosion of milk additives on today’s tea markets. Enjoyed by Taiwanese for its creamy texture and buttery aromas, we offer it here in its simplest form, void of any augmented flavours.

You’ll find refreshing flowery notes (lily, dandelions) alongside vanilla overtones and, perhaps, a subtle spicy finish (cinnamon, nutmeg). All famously coated in this thick and syrupy texture.

This was sent as a sample in my recent CS order! The flavour is quite nice, but a bit more vegetal than the other unroasted oolongs I ordered. It’s lovely nonetheless, and oolongs are always so lovely while trying to get big projects or papers done, I find. There’s a subtle sweetness and an ever more subtle bitterness in the background. This doesn’t detract though. There’s some creaminess, but it’s not the most predominant and then perhaps some very light floral (jasmine) flavours. An enjoyable cuppa overall!

A random story: I had a volunteer shift earlier this week and someone called in about a red-tailed hawk (incredible and majestic animals!) on the ground. I gave them directions on how to carefully approach and capture the hawk, if they were comfortable, and they were actually able to do it! They captured the hawk and brought it to the wildlife centre for care and it’s just so wonderful when things work out for the best!

Also, we got our second vaccine shots yesterday, yay!

Nice! To all of the above!

That’s a great story! I also got my second dose yesterday and am not feeling great today. Still, I’m happy to be fully vaccinated!

I hope you feel better soon Leafhopper! I’ve been very lucky to have only had a slightly sore arm both times, but my partner — not so much!

Leafhopper

Thanks! I hardly had any side effects after my first shot, and they kind of took me by surprise after this one. I’m glad you got off lightly. :)

Gongfu!

Somehow I ended up picking a tea last weekend that capitalized on both the trains I seem to be riding right now: oolong teas and thing that taste like butter. It’s so buttery and creamy and the texture from steep tea steep is so soft and rich. Love the florals that crop up in this tea and the slight green banana undertones of some of the mid steeps. Got many, many steeps out of this one!

Also – I need to get in the habit of using this pot more because it’s such a beauty!!
