Delicious tea with brown sugar, caramel and rose like taste. There is a hint of flavor that reminds you of a black tea, but softer and more on the floral side, kind of like rosehip. In the aftertaste there is a bit of honey that reminds me of Teddy Graham cookies a little bit. A sweet and comforting tea perfect for dessert!
I love the Red Oolong so the Alishan version poses a dilemma-
it's noticeably better, but is it worth the 50% price increase?
but I'll finish my stock of regular Red Oolong first :)
No love for this tea? I loved how this tea seemed to change character over successive brewings, at least for me. Malty sweetness throughout, especially at first, but gradually revealing floral undertones in later steeps. I guess this is what happens when Ruby 18 and Alishan have a baby.
