This oolong is sooooo yummy! I never knew oolongs could be aged. Now I am sad to find out that they are ‘rare’ and might go extinct. I sure hope not!!
I don’t even know where to begin with the description. . .
It brews up really dark and smells like a roasted oolong. I wasn’t expecting much. Dark-roast oolong wasn’t a favorite as it was all roast and nothing else. But this is roasty and creamy and sweet and so much more! It’s like a sweet, creamy houjicha but with an aftertaste and texture like Verdant’s Laoshan Black or Butiki’s Caramel Assam (both of which I wasn’t thrilled about mostly, I thought, because of that texture). The flavors,texture and smell of this gem all come together nicely.
And gosh darn-it to me for trying Butiki samples only days after I place an order. Soon I’ll be spending more at Butiki than at the grocery store (^^)
