I was kind of nervous about this tea, because, if you’ve read my bio you’d know that I don’t really care much for red robe Oolong teas, but I decided to break out of my comfort zone in a big way when I ordered this tea.
And I’m glad I ordered it! The flavor IS smoky, but, I found that a quick rinse to awaken the tea leaves did much to soften the smoky taste of this tea. Now it is pleasantly roasty with a mild smoky note. It has a nice sweetness and a distant floral note.
Now… I guess I should change my bio!
