Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: East Pacific Tea Co.
Travel far away to the Fujian Province of China. Our Honey Gold Tea steeps a nice amber color and releases a captivating orchid scent. Serves great chilled, and will impress any connoisseur.
A lovely Oolong.
Just as the description above suggests, the aroma is indeed captivating with its flowery notes. I can also detect a somewhat woody fragrance to it, with notes of earth lingering in the background.
The sip begins with a woody flavor – oak, perhaps? – and finishes with a sweet, honey-esque smoothness. There are faint hints of smoke that weave in and out throughout the sip, and a stronger fruit note that is somewhat peach-like. There is also the slightest whisper of flower in the sip that reminds me of the air in my gramma’s backyard when the honeysuckles were in bloom.
I have come to expect exceptional quality when it comes to East Pacific Tea Company and this Oolong is certainly exceptional. The flavor is deliciously complex and contemplative, with an aroma that enchants the spirit. And the best part when it comes to East Pacific Tea’s high-quality Oolong teas? They product multiple infusions – stretching the value of this fine tea. What a delight!
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!
