Taster’s Review:

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!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
