Wow, this tea was a very interesting experience for me. I never had an oolong like this. I’m going to have to experiment with more different kinds of oolong in order to figure out what’s what.
The dry leaf smelled like chocolate to me, and the tea tasted like coffee. I mean, really like coffee! At least to me. Sometimes I wonder if I have a VERY unsophisticated palate because I am in awe of other people’s tasting notes. Honestly, I was so overwhelmed by the coffee taste that I didn’t really notice anything else about it!
I’m glad I have more of this so I can keep trying it to see if it grows on me. I wonder if it’s the aging or the roasting or what that makes it taste so coffee-ish. Like I said, when I get more experience with oolongs, I guess I’ll know!
No rating because I really don’t know what to think!
