This vaulted toward the top of my favorite oolongs...at once green (but only a hint, just enough to bring out the charcoal tones) and roasty, super sweet, a little floral, but with some real body. And the entire, complex flavor lasts over many infusions. (5g/100g @208f98c: 30, 45, 60, 90 seconds). Despite my already overwhelming stock of tea at home, I'm going to have to get more of this one!
This tea feels like a hug from a friend. That loves you (: it’s delicious and energetic without being manic. Really smooth happy tea. I can tell the farmers who grew it love their job. Bc I love. Every. Cup.
wow. this tea is fantastic, it rides the line between that green style oolong that I don't care for at all, and more heavily roasted oolongs which is what I drink most of the time. it is full bodied and round, yet bright and juicy. this tea is blowing me away.
This was one of the samples that was kindly included in my order. Thank you! I am not well versed in oolong, let alone a roasted one. Steeped for 2 minutes, western style. It has a forward roast smell so I expected it to taste very smoky, but when you drink it, you get a slight fruity and creamy taste with just a hint of smoke just as described. Enjoyed drinking this beautiful tea and would recommend.
Man, what a tea.
Unlike most Milk oolongs the milkly flavor lasts for many steeps and doesn't all hit you up front.
You get a nice creamy green oolong flavor with a bunch of sweetness and a hint of roast flavor. I don't get any florals here, just sweet and a little fruity. Feels strange to call this a daily drinker, because its a far higher level of quality.
I found this tea benefits hugely from being brewed in clay. In porcelain you get a bit of a Smokey edge. That flavor is much more pleasant in clay.
