I just realized with horror that my stock of JE Milk Oolong Theodor is dramatically running low … so I decided to rather go for a cup of this tea.
J.E = Jardin d’Exception (exceptional Garden) in the Théodorian terminology. Well it’s true, again! it’s a beautiful and Yunnan and you should believe me because Yunnan are not among my favorite teas.
The dry leaves are typical of this variety of teas, a mixt of dark brown and golden sand twisted leaves
The liquor is an INCREDIBLE dark brown, almost earthy- surprising as the steep lasted 3 minutes and 85 ° C only.
The taste is mostly made of malt and cocoa with a hint of honey. No bitterness at all.
The texture is a deep mellow.
It is a very nice tea and I think I’ll add it to my permanent collection as the Yunnan reference.
I used for the first time my new teacup Roy Kirkham bought 3 hours ago in La Vaissellerie rue Mogador in Paris.
It really makes a huge difference when drinking in a fine bone china cup … my other percelain or English earthenware cups seem really pale vs this one.
You can see some pics of the tea here on my blog :
