Mim Classic Spring Oolong Tea


Darjeeling’s Mim tea estate has gathered quite the reputation for producing delicate yet flavorful oolongs which are now prized all over the world. This season’s oolong stands testimony to this claim, with its incredibly fragrant and melt-in-your-mouth flavors, most notably of lily and white peony.

the experience



Fragrant notes of sweet white flowers like peony and lily, honeyed undertones, and a touch of pine.


Golden yellow


Incredibly smooth, full bodied and ample in the mouth, with impeccably balanced notes of sweet white flowers and fresh, celery-like greens. It has a lingering and incredibly sweet finish.


Puff pastry, crepes, and waffle.

dry leaf


Edgy, distinctly green, mildly sweet, with notes of yellow flowers in the attack and toasted almonds in the release.


Loosely rolled dark green leaves with pale green buds with downy hair.



Lifted notes of citrus blossom and fresh greens, similar to celery and parsley.


Bright olive green leaves with light coppery hues.

Delicate and Tasty

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon.

Needs nothing to bring out the great qualities. Delicate, but bitters quickly if left too long.

An absolute delight!

This is a truly special tea that I love so much I only drink it on special occasions. It is light, clean and a very well-balanced tea. The fresh green and flowery flavors are bright and evocative of springtime. The only thing that makes me sad is it recommends 3 tsp of tea per cup, which means I will go through it very quickly if I'm not careful. I love it so much that I plan to order more while I can!

Light and thoughtful

Greens. Light. No sense of tannins or bitterness. The taste of white flowers is very light but not to be understated. No need to add lemon or honey, it's just so enjoyable by itself.

A truly pleasant flavor. I am not usually one for grassy teas, but this one hit the spot.

Pure flowers!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

The most aromatic Darjeeling style Oolong I have encountered. Although imbuing angelic, floral sweetness I wouldn't say it is a light tea at at all. Delicate but full bodied. I love that. Completely transporting its patron's olfactory process to a pristine Spring highland meadow of the kindest flowers!

Just an Oolong

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Dislikes : No Flavor, Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Dessert Tea.

Overall, this is definitely not a bad tea. However, I find that it just isn't really unique. If you like generic oolong tea, this is the one for you. I didn't really find anything too special about it. That being said, I thought it was wonderful for what it is! It really is a fine Oolong tea, just not really what I am looking for.

Interesting aroma when dry

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

This tea had an interesting aroma when dry and once steeped, tastes a little less sweet. However, it was an enjoyable cup of tea when sweetened, which goes well with the "fresh greens" flavor that is noticeable. I wasn't sure it would go well, but it did.

This lovely tea is definitely "green". You can taste the sweet white flowers on the finish. This estate provides some of my favorite teas!!

Received this as part of my sample- and this is a great full bodied tea! I am in my second steep and this is still packs a punch. Smooth finish on the palate also. Recommended!

White flowers

Best Served : Anytime, Dessert Tea.

Mim is great! While I did not not know before what the white flower aroma and palate is, now I know, after tasting Mim. Even it is not white flower, I really enjoyed sniffing the aroma of the dry leafs, reminding me of a mountain meadow with freshly dried wild flower and grass. The brew did not lag behind nor did the palate. The herby sweetness is so satisfying! It is a truely special tee for all occasion, especially for celebration of the Himalayas.

Enjoyable oolong. Fresh green flavor with a light sweetness. I find this to be a high-quality oolong. Enjoyable for kicking back with a good book.

Light and sweet

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

The leaves smell like dry, sweet grass. The tea is light, green, and nutty, which I really like. It doesn't have the strong flavours of the other samples that were sent to me, but I find this to be the most refreshing.

Light and Delightful!

Likes : Freshness, High Quality.

A super, light, delicate and refreshing tea! The scent of the dried leaves is somewhat green, with a tinge of parsley and weeds. The liquor is extremely light, a sort of very faint green veering gray. The taste is delightful! Love.

Nice oolong

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality.

Aroma very floral, but not very intense for my nose. Taste quite sweet, but not very much so. Some vegetal notes as well as floral. A hint of nuts as well. Finish is pleasing and sweet. A nice tea, but a little too much typical oolong for my taste. I usually prefer the ordinary black teas.

Refreshing and Tasty

Received this as a free sample, it has a lovely aroma and strong taste to it. Brew it for lesser time if consuming during evenings. Best to have it as a morning refresher.
