Drink Me: Tea Runners, Water Sprite Oolong

I’m awash in samples from Tea Runners!  This week I brought Water Sprite Oolong to work to try.

Water Sprite Oolong is pure oolong tea from a family farm high up in the mountains of Southeast China.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag is how smoky this tea is.  The packaging suggests there is some honey sweetness “balanced with strong earthy tones,” but all I got from this one was a smoky smell and taste.  In general, I find oolongs very mellow and I enjoy them, but I think this one was too smoky for me. I enjoyed trying it, but I wouldn’t add it to my permanent collection.
