Just got this tea in today for xmas in addition to the Diggnation “Hippie Glenn” set from Samovar. After about 2 or 3 infusions of this oolong, I have to say I am pretty impressed. The Samovar website lists the flavor profile of this tea to be rich and complex with roasted notes and hints of raisins, barley, peat, and honeysuckle. From what I can tell, they are spot on with their description. Great tea.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 0 sec

Excellent! I’ve tried this one a couple of times; I’m still trying to get myself acquainted with the darker oolongs. They taste good, I just can’t pick them apart. It’s a newer flavor for me. Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on Hippie Glenn’s tea set!

I’m a complete newcomer to the oolong world. I very rarely ever drink them, but I’m beginning to love them. Now on to the Hippie Glenn set!
