winter DYL of origin tea. You can smell it's outstanding price/quality ratio from the moment you open the bag, strong flowery aroma which makes my expectations sky rocket. It seems to be rolled fairly loose, with highly visable stems. Tony from origintea told me to brew with ample leaf and it upgraded my tea experience big time.
Every brew seems to bring this tea to a new level as new flavours arises. One of the strangest - please, hold your heart for this one- flavours I've experienced in this one has to be paprika and cookie dough. My facial expression when tasting this had to be exactly the same as yours will be right now... it was only there in that particular cup and brew but it was there for sure! I wouldn't have noticed the juicy paprika feeling if I hadn't been to Budapest, paprika seems to be their staple food.
Now it's time to try to squeeze out some more tea out of these leafs!

Correction: My humble apologies, it seems that I've been mistaken. These teaproducers started under the royal project but are completely independent family bussines right now.
From these 3 samples there was 1 I liked, 1 that was ok and one I didn't like at all.
This one is already great bang for your buck.
I'm to have received the oppertunity to compare these Thai oolongs against their Taiwanese counterparts. It has given better insights in the cultivars as well as in the production proces.
All of them lack a bit in the finesse and elegance the Taiwanese oolong tea provides but what do you expect for such a price?

As some of you've probably have noticed, I haven't been that active lately.
I'm right in the middle of my exams now and barely have time for tea, and if I do, I don't want to worry about taking notes or writing reviews.
I'll be finished the 26th of June, so expect many reviews over the course of summer.
Thank you for your patient and see you all in a few weeks ;)
