It’s a wonderfully cool fall day that made me crave a nice dark oolong. Now that’s something I never thought I’d say about roasted oolongs! Brewed this up in my 12 oz Italian mug with a brew basket. It tastes pretty much like it did before, see previous tasting note, but because I finding myself more tolerant of roasty notes this one has become that much more enjoyable for me. It was the perfect tea for the cool cloudy weather we’re having here today.

I agree. I like the roasty oolongs for Fall and Winter. This one is that kind to me. Not all flowers like a tropical island.

This type of Oolong is so good. Also, another darker Oolong that is real good is a charcoal roasted dong-ding ( Tung-Ting).

I will have to revisit dong-ding oolong sometime. I know I didn’t care for them before, but now perhaps I might.

I drank strong fire tieguanyin last night and tonight that’s really roasty and good. I had it sweetened tonight just to check it out that way. Like it both ways.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
