Sparrow — Heavily Oxidized GABA Oolong, Spring 2019
This batch of Sparrow is NOT vacuum sealed. This was so that I could get it here in time for Cyber Monday!
This heavily oxidized GABA oolong is bursting with rich aromatics and a super complex body! First impressions are of chex mix and chocolate, and it actually strongly reminds me of a baked chocolate chex mix that my mom makes sometimes. Other notes are a tartness almost akin to cherry and some slight spice in the finish. Really active mouthfeel and a creamy sweet finish! One of my go-to's recently, Sparrow is also one of the best cost/value ratio teas I've come across.
