Most of the oolong I’ve had to date has been flavored, except for Teavana’s Monkey Picked Oolong. That makes this the second regular oolong I’ve had. The flavor is good overall, but it has an extra taste that’s a little burnt, smoky, or something else (I don’t know how to describe it). The monkey picked oolong has the same basic flavor, but a light airiness and a silky quality that makes me think of gems (I don’t have synesthesia; these are just the weird things that come to my mind). Compared to that, this oolong is not as good. I’ll have to try more regular oolongs (I have at least two others in my cupboard) and then reevaluate this one.

(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
