This is one of few greener teas that TheTea sells, so I was a bit wary of the fact that green oolongs are not their specialty. However, any worries proved unjustified, this is a lovely aromatic, sweet, and floral tea with really good longevity. The qi seems mostly caffeine driven and a little rushy for my liking. It is a good tea to get energized though, which is not the case with most oolongs for me.
Dry leaves smell milky and flowery with additional notes of cookies and sauerkraut. The wet leaf aroma is really pungent and hard to specify. It reminds me of rainforest, cut grass and stewed greens for example. In the empty cup, I can also smell passion fruits, jasmine and shea butter.
The tea is easy to drink with its lighter body and fleeting mouthfeel. However, there is a good astringency too and a strong floral sourness that make it quite engaging. The taste is predominately a mix of sweet and sour flavours. There are notes of spinach, milk, spices, lemongrass, and fermented vegetables.
