Gongfu from the Tiger Box!
What a gentle and lightly oxidized oolong! I think this is my favourite tea sample so far; the liquor of this oolong was just so silky and buttery and it perfectly complimented the fragile, sweet floral notes of this tea so much! Very aromatic and light, with the freshness of Springtime flowers and jasmine blossoms. About three or four infusions in it dawned on me that this was giving me the satisfying and warm sensation of a linens fresh out of the dryer – but through taste! That super clean, sweet and light coziness that just swallows you up and leaves you with a feeling of home and peacefulness.
We’re officially past a week into the Tiger Box and it’s been such a fun journey so far; while I haven’t really been able to catch any of the livestreams (timezones, ugh!), it has been a total joy reading everyone’s tasting notes and see all the different sessions each day!
