15th and final day of the Tiger Box from a couple of years ago, which also means I’m officially done with all of my lingering countdown boxes and ready for advent season.

I was so glad to see an oolong for the last day! This is definitely a good fit for a cold, wintry day. I steeped this gong fu style and oversteeped it a few times, but it is actually very forgiving. The oversteep just made the roasty, mineral notes stronger and cozier. I think part of the reason it takes an oversteep well is that there’s no bitterness or astringency here. Yes, it’s a bit drying, but not in that sharp way. It’s getting late now so I should probably cut off my caffeine for the day, but I think I’ll make a full mug of this and stash it for tomorrow.

Oh how jealous! I dream of being done with my previous seasonal teas before the season comes again the following year (but this includes spring greens and summer fruity and autumn cozy etc. not just winter/advent). Someday! Congrats on getting done and a in early November to boot :)

Oh yeah no I definitely don’t finish ALL of my seasonal teas within a year. This is about as close to an accomplishment towards that goal as I’m going to get.

Gongfu!

This tea was the sample for the final day of Lunar New Year and the Tiger Box! I was a little surprised to see an oolong since all the selections had been in order of tea type so far – I just assumed that meant we would be finishing with a pu’erh. However, despite the surprise, I’m certainly not disappointed! This was a very lovely yancha with a deep roast and woody mineral intenseness to it! Awesome grilled stonefruit notes right off the bat! However, it softened slightly over the steeps and the floral plum undertones continued to slowly build. A really beautiful way to close out this experience!
