I ordered Wuyi Tea from Adagio, just got it in 5 minutes ago. Started my kettle and now it's brewing. I'm excited.. will continue this post in 5 minutes when it's ready.
It's about 94 degrees outside today.. when I got the box, the teas where really hot. I hope the heat didn't cause any ills. From what I can tell so far it looks good, has that oriental smell that I love. Not quite sure how it compares to the last batch. Let's give it a try!
I'm also eating an American mix sub so bare with me. The color of the tea is darkish brown, a shade lighter than the actual tea. After my first few sips it tastes great! I love those dark, barkly notes at the end of the sip. This tea is rival to my favorite. Maybe my favorite Oolong, it may take weeks to determine that but so far it's going good.
I'm having this tea with my supper.. it's one of those tea's that I see myself having at any occasion. Maybe not a morning tea for me however, though a dependable tea. I tend to like my Oolong's at night and Green and Whites in the morning. Now that I took some more sips.. I imagine milk would go absolutely great with this tea.
Now that my palate has gotten a good taste, I'd give this tea a 5 out of a 5. I'm glad I ordered the big tin.
