Mission #2 for this TTB: try all the types of oolongs! Today, my goal was to try all the Taiwanese oolongs. The leaves are tightly rolled and very dark and have a characteristic oolong smell. Brewed the smell is much the same and the liquor is a pale lemon yellow. The taste is very nutty and buttery with a woodsy quality (NOT like the dreaded rooibos woodsy taste, it’s actually pleasant). It has a very creamy mouthfeel and the sip ends with a light sweetness. Despite having so many teas to try, I had to go back for a second steep with this one!
Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Nutty, Sweet, Wood
