Another tea from my Canton Tea sampler. I really enjoy Dan Cong tea, and especially love oolong. This one was no exception.
These tea leaves are very dark. They smell roasted. 195/3 min. Whoa. I can smell the roasted leaves quite clearly from across the room. It’s quite fragrant, actually. The liquor is dark, a medium-dark brown. The taste is lovely. It’s quite intense for an oolong. Very roasted, to match the scent. I’m not picking up that much fruitiness, but there is definitely a sweetness to it that I can’t quite put my finger on. It lingers for quite some time after taking a sip.
