Floral, sweet, light, buttery, notes of cooked banana
I have fallen in love with this tea. I bought it during the off season and it tastes so rich and floral! The leaves also provide many servings for the small quantities you use. 100% the best Gardenia tea I have ever had, among the many I have tried.
I've tried other flower oolongs before, but this one caught me by surprise. It hits with a very unique fermented fruit flavor like peach wine and a gentle, lingering sweetness. A light and easy drink even among green oolongs.
There are some discrepancies in the website's description and the bag. The bag says it is QinXin cultivar while the webpage says Jinxian. Also, the bag says 35% oxidation while the webpage says 25%. I would definitely lean towards the website being correct given this tea's buttery mouth feel. Very reminiscent of a milk oolong, but with an extra floral kick.
Delicately floral tea with a faint sweetness and lingering mouthfeel. The scent and taste remind me of the first hazy, warm June day when the honeysuckle is blooming. Really beautiful.
