Taster’s Review:

I love teas like this – ones that are full of mystery and intrigue.

The mystery begins with its welcoming aroma.  It is a lightly roasted scent with hints of a floral quality.  It’s very intriguing; beckoning me to sip.

The sip starts out with a light roasty-toasty taste.  What is so unique about this particular “roasty-toasty” Oolong is that that toasted flavor is delicate and doesn’t overwhelm the cup.  Instead, it is so light that it keeps me curious – did I just taste that?  And this curiosity keeps me sipping.

There is also a sweet vegetative taste to this Oolong that slowly evolves into more of a floral note.  Yet another subtle tone that keeps me wondering.

This particular Competition Grade appears to no longer be available on the Life in Teacup website, however, there are similar Oolongs that are available, and I highly recommend getting some before they sell out!

I prefer this tea hot, but it is alright iced too.  I have never been less than impressed with the teas I’ve received from Life in Teacup.  Their teas are always of utmost quality, and this tea is no exception.   This tea is delightful!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
