Drank this one at my buddy’s Reqwer’s place.

It’s an oolong tea from China, gave me a lot of surprises!

Really great oolong, much better than any oolong I’ve tried before. Reminded me of a pu-erh a little bit, some earthy and malty notes were definitely there! I drank it with a tad of sugar, but I think it would be great without it too. One more thing that was surprising, was that it didn’t have a strong smell! I expected a fairly rough smell, but it had just a nice little aroma, reminded me of walnuts a bit.

Oolong gets some bonus points from me for this one!
