It was supposed to be a caffeine free day, but I indulged in an oolong around noon because I only had caffeinated teas with me at the time. I couldn’t just /not/ have tea, as I would not be home for at least an hour or two. Other tea drinkers understand.
I made a tea called “Taiwan oolong” that I received in a sample trade through reddit. I don’t know who they bought it from, but it tastes like a very high quality one.
I brewed this grandpa style because all I had was the looseleaf. It gave the leaves lots of room to unfurl. It didn’t overbrew, which I appreciated. As with most jade oolongs, this was smooth, buttery, and very floral. I wish I knew what company it was from so I could buy more. The orchid notes and the tulip and the butter…it was a delightful cup. Luckily I have about 5-8 cups of this left in the pouch.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Orchid, Smooth, Sweet
