It taste like dark chocolate berry, sweet and refreshing taste. The age makes it really good too.
This is my first time trying this cultivar. To me it tastes a bit like guava, which is something that I like. I am getting strong and clear flavors from just 30 seconds of brewing. That’s very exciting, and I know I will get at least four steeping‘s from these tea leaves, maybe even more.
Sometimes I taste something that I call dust (or maybe twigs?). There’s some kind of vaguely earthy hint to the flavor. The second steeping is much darker. The dusty flavor comes forward a bit and the fruit is less prominent. Fruity notes return as the tea cools.
I will buy more of this one.
There’s a very complex cooked fruit aroma mixed with cocoa malt character from the first few steeps. Reminds me of my favourite roasted small leaf black tea! The red oolong characteristics gradually showed in the later steeps and it does have quite a good brewing stamina. Highly recommended.
