This Anxi oolong isn’t currently available on Adagio’s site, but I’m reviewing it so you know what to look for if it returns or if something like it pops back up!
Here we have a lovely oolong with a nectar/nut flavor that’s closer to green than black. It’s a very light flavor that stays with you after you swallow it. This tastes like that point in the late afternoon when you’ve stopped paying attention to time. Dinner will come eventually, you guess.
This feeling is, more accurately, the feeling of long summers at summer camp. This tea is summer camp in a bag. It reminds me of long afternoons spent making crafts and learning archery and swimming laps. Gritting my teeth until I found a few friends in my group. Trying to make blades of grass sing. Getting picked up at the end of the day, woozy with sunburn. Having dirty feet and having little scratches around my ankles from hurtling across rocks. Learning how to craft a ghost story and tell a lie about having kissed a boy and pretend to be a mermaid effectively.
I eventually stopped going to summer camp (as do most of us, unless we wind up owning one). But every summer I always wonder why I’m not there, still. I’m like “it’s camp season. Why am I in this office?”
Today a little part of me scurried off to camp season. Thanks, Adagio.
Here’s the scoop!
