Acacia Charcoal-Roast Oolong


Finally, finally an affordable charcoal-roasted oolong. This Jinxuan (Milk Oolong) Cultivar tea is hand picked and expertly roasted in a place not famous for tea. That might change soon. Roasted upfront with a thick buttery mid-mouth, this tea finishes sweet with fruit and just a hint of fragrant smoke in the aftertaste. After finding this tea it has been a staple around around the MST office as an easy-to-brew 'grandpa style' friendly tea that can be drunk all day. Just throw some in a mug, keep adding hot water and drink all day!

It's a lovely charcoal oolong that quickly became one of my favorits.


This vaulted toward the top of my favorite 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!

What an amazing tea feel

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.

Great flavor combination

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.
