Another tea from Sil (Thank you!) and I agree that this has a lot of similarities to Laoshan Black.
So far I’m enjoying this one more than the black tea. There was a strong aroma of roasted potato in the Laoshan Black that was a bit overpowering for me and it doesn’t seem to be so predominant here.
I’ve decided not to rank this tea because I feel that if I was drinking it in cool weather that I’d probably be ranking it much higher, it seems like a perfect warm cozy cup. We are well into 30ºC+ days now and I find the light floral flavours of green style oolongs much more appealing in this weather. That is hardly this teas fault though and it is delicious.
I only had a sample of this one but if it comes back for sale I’ll try to grab some to stash aside for cool nights.
