Bai Hao is one of most renowned oolong teas and has natural fruity aromas with notes of peaches that produce a sweet and spring honey tasting bright-reddish orange tea liquor.
This Oolong brews to a beautiful, bright amber color that is pleasantly fragrant. Smelling a little of flower and of fruit, with just a hint of smoke in the distance, this tea is begging me to take a sip!
The sip begins with a bright introduction of peach-like flavor with very subtle floral notes weaving throughout. About mid-sip, the palate is enveloped with a smooth sweetness that is honey-like in flavor. It is about this time that I notice that the light yet silky mouthfeel.
I don’t notice a tremendous amount of astringency with this cup, however, I do notice enough to mention it. It seems to softly polish the palate. The aftertaste is sweet with a savory whisper of tangy/sour taste.
A delightfully complex Oolong! I love this!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
