This is actually the second “Monkey Picked” oolong I’ve had. The first didn’t impress me much, but this had a lot going for it. First off, it was the green kind of oolong. I tend to prefer those (with the exception of some charcoal-roasted varieties), and second, it had me on scent – a milky aroma with a floral bite. Those same traits translated to taste. However, if I was to steep again, I’d probably do so for another minute. It was very light the first time around, reminding me of a Bai Mu Dan. Thankfully the flavor was robust enough to compensate.

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
