Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Ducky Life Tea
We named this amazing Oolong for its distinctive buttery aroma and its fascinating taste-rich, smooth, and slightly sweet, with intriguing butter-like overtones. It reminds us of buttered popcorn. The tea, from the high mountains of Taiwan, has broad leaves that brew up beautifully to a light golden color. It’s absolutely delicious! One whiff, one sip, and you know you’ve found something special.
This is an amazingly buttery Oolong! That buttery taste and feel is something that is actually quite typical in “green” Oolong teas, however, with this tea, the butter flavor is amplified. Intense!
The mouthfeel is very smooth and rich. The best way I can think of to describe it is velvety – it feels thick and substantial and soft and luxurious. Like butter!
The tea possesses a faint, slightly sharp floral note that offers a delightful contrast to the smooth buttery taste that dominates this cup. There is also a slightly vegetable taste to it… leafy and green. This is an interestingly complex tea.
Ducky Life Tea offers a truly delightful experience with this tea. From the lovely packaging (what a treat it is to open a package from Ducky Life!) to the exceptional taste of this Oolong, I’m very impressed!
These tightly wound tea leaves also produce multiple infusions… I managed SIX infusions from the same leaves. Six very flavorful, delicious infusions. This tea is definitely worth it’s weight in gold(en) butter!
