My July box arrived today, so I’m sipping on some Orchid Fragrance this afternoon! It’s beautifully aromatic with sweet heady florals and a nice grounding mineral and woody body flavour with hints of honey. Though I love steeping them gongfu, I rarely make my oolongs Western style because I tend to be a little careless and forgetful with my steep times – but something today told me that’s what I wanted this afternoon. I did end up oversteeping it, of course – but to my delight it’s been incredibly forgiving of my less than stellar attention to detail with my brewing!
