Yellow Gold Oolong from Eteaket

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Oolong

Where to Buy:  Eteaket

Product Description:

There’s a new gold rush in town and while we can’t promise it will make you rich, this Yellow Gold Oolong tea will definitely make you feel like a million dollars. The hand-rolled leaves open beautifully to create a complex mix of sweetness and tangyness topped off with notes of fresh grass.

Taster’s Review:

The dry leaf looks like tiny, odd-shaped pellets and smells of freshly cut grass.  It smells very fresh and green and beautiful – definitely very spring-like!  The fragrance of the brewed tea is softened significantly, but still maintains some of that grassy aroma.

The flavor is very unexpected!  From the scent, I expected this to be highly vegetative, but that is only one component of this complex tea.  There is also a sweet, creamy note that not only tastes like fresh cream but also imparts a very creamy feeling on the palate.  What differentiates this creamy note from a typical green Oolong is that it doesn’t taste buttery, it tastes more like cream.  It’s very smooth and silky.

There is also a floral note that weaves in and out of the sip – possibly honeysuckle?  It’s quite a delightful taste.  The sweetness to this cup is incredible – I do not recommend adding any sweetener to this as you will overwhelm it.  This is one tea that is perfect as it is!

An absolute delight to drink, this Yellow Gold Oolong!

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!
