I’m the pickiest person I know, extra picky about oolongs, and get bored with flavors and varieties easily. I’m also not a routined person; trying to get me to do the same exact thing daily is a cause lost before it started, but I actually developed a morning tea ritual around this one. AND it’s May ‘22, and I’ve been drinking this daily since October. Kind of a first, kind of a miracle.
It’s good, fam.
It has a perfect medium body, and absolutely has the described delicate sticky rice & steamed banana leaf flavor to it, which is delightful. A hot cup of this does so much to liven my spirits. I drink it with a little sugar, only—I personally find its delicate but complex flavors don’t hold up well to even a splash of milk. That’s just me tho, seems a lot of folx like it that way!
And man, I don’t know what happened to In the Mood for Love, but if you’re ever able to bring it back, I beg you. August Uncommon, for being primarily in the blend business, does single origins RIGHT.
