From Tearunners

Grown from 200-year-old tea trees on the steep steps of a high mountain side, this tea is a unique creation from a master tea maker known for crafting award-winning dan cong oolongs. This is a heavily processed oolong that undergoes multiple stages of sorting, withering, oxidation, and wood charcoal firing.

Plum Blossom is truly exquisite with a peachy, naturally sweet aroma followed by notes of plum, stone fruit, and almonds.

Sipdown (325)

I was talking to Roswell Strange and asked her to pick a tea for me. Completely randomly, she happened to pick a tea she gave me. So thank you Roswell Strange for both sharing this with me and selecting it for me to drink today!

I started taking sips when it was very hot and the flavor was all plum. However, I am worried that as this cools, it will get a metallic twang at the end of the sip. Something gave me that impression as I drank. As such, I am trying to drink this while very hot. My brother distracted me with talks of Wandavision though so now I am drinking it warm.

As it cools, its more floral, as opposed to more metallic, which is nice. However, the plum flavor faded slightly and that’s less appealing. Good, but not a favorite. Happy to have tried it though.

I’ve been steeping a lot of Dancong Western style lately because I’m enjoying it more brewed that way than Gongfu, and this is one of several I’ve had with that method of brewing. More mineral and rock-y flavours in the top notes with bits of char and roast, but then floral notes like orchid that build up from undertones to more of a main body flavour with these flavour ribbons of stonefruit that lightly dance overtop of that. Complex, and medium bodied – and just so cozy feeling.

dear friends, i’ve departed from my precious black teas for a bit to try this oolong. i haven’t had a lot of oolong teas so far. i adore milky oolong by World of Tea, but that’s another entry.

this is a delightfully bright tea with a bit of zing and a lot of flavour. i can taste the hint of oolongy-ness, how do i describe that? sort of milky/buttery?
it’s also got a smokey flavour as well. the aroma upon first nose sniff when it’s still dry is very plummy but the taste is more peach than plum. this tea feels very kind and friendly on a rainy day in Ottawa and is a good distraction from the free floating anxiety of these sad and worrieome times. i hope you are safe and healthy where you are, my friends.
