Taken plain and with a little bit of sugar.
Without sugar the flavor is a deep woody peachy… thing. I was expecting more or a bright oolong to be pared with the peach flavor from a alishan to a monkey picked whatever but this is different. When you take it very hot the peach flavor is full and sweet with the underlying tea flavors giving a base to round the palate.
Very nice. Not was I was expecting but very pleasant.
And then the tea cools off a little… DON’T let the tea cool off too much! It starts getting woody… and the peach starts to fade… and then more wood and more wood and wood and wood wood wood wood.
All it ends up tasting like wood! And not good wood either… old musty wood.
With Sugar?
Add a pinch of sugar and it makes the peach sparkle when taken hot.
And as it cools… still woody… it takes longer to get to brick of wood but it still heads off down that path of why didn’t they pick a different mixing oolong.
… meh
Great at the beginning…

good luck!

Totally agree with the woody observations. I just wrote my tasting note and saw this and felt like, “YES, I’m not the only one!” :)

I guess wood is quite a good description. Cardboard sprang to my mind. it is quite pleasant though. I must the sugar!
