Where To Buy: The Tao of Tea
Very buttery, almost void of any astringency. Full-bodied, smooth with flavor of dried, preserved plums.
Nepali Oolong from The Tao of Tea has a faded fresh yet cocoa-powder aroma to it before infusing.
The leaves are WILD and fun! They almost have a natural tye-dyed effect with natural and earthy colors! I LOVE these leaves!
The smell of this completely changes as it infuses! While infusing there is a nice, unique scent…buttery but very plum-like with a hint of nuttiness! The leaves are swimming and dancing around in my cup. They are very active lil buggers! They have a lot of character! I like that in a tea!
The color of the liquor is very light brown with almost a greyness to it.
The taste is very pure. It seems to quench my thirst. There are both fruity and nutty flavors present…maybe more plum notes than nut notes, however.
This is a VERY Impressive Oolong! It’s creamy and buttery and has a very nice aftertaste!
