Dry leaf aromas: Sweet potato, bread, wheat, sawdust, licorice
Brewed tea aromas: Sweet potato, hint of juicy citrus, light mineral smokiness
Tasting notes: Sweet potato and juicy fruit flavour (I am getting a taste of litchi) on the sip. The smokiness comes through as a top note throughout the sip and is the predominant lingering aftertaste. Some honey sweetness on the aftertaste. There a note in here that reminds me very strongly of a characteristic leathery black tea flavour.

Second infusion at 3:15 minutes gives the flavour a floral characteristic

Flavors: Leather, Lychee, Smoke, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes

Thin tasting with a sweet finish. There is a hint of grapefruit flavour that I normally find with oolongs. The bulk of the creaminess is in the aftertaste but I’m noticing the aftertaste to be a bit sour. I may consider infusing this tea for longer in the future to see if I can get a more bold flavour. The scent of the dry leaf is certainly the full sweet pudding aroma I normally expect with a milk oolong.

Slight sweetness and creaminess. This one definitely benefited from a longer infusion time at a higher temperature

My western infusion brew parameters that I usually use for my Milk Oolongs did not work well with this one. I will have to infuse for a shorter amount of time in the future.
