This is another tea I received from a member of another board. I was lucky enough to actually receive it in the tin version of the sample.
The leaves are very beautiful. They have a downy fluff that reminds me instantly of white tea. When I first received this I assumed it was black tea. The smell is very different than other oolongs that I’ve encountered. The liquor is toasted brown colored and it is very fragrant. There is something almost fruity about the smell of this tea.
This tea is really surprising me! I don’t normally warm to this type of profile, but this is wonderful. This tea is very sweet and is much lighter than what I was expecting. I love how smooth this is. I was expecting maybe a bit more bite/astringency but it just isn’t there.
