This is a very rich oolong. It smells roasted when dry and maintains that scent once steeped, but with an added earthiness that reminded me of a pu erh, which created a bit of unfounded anxiety as my pu erh experiences have been less than stellar. For an oolong, it’s a dark tea and has a dark liquor. 195/3.5 min. There’s no bitterness at all and I can most definitely taste a woodsy, chestnut like taste. It’s a very savory tea.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
