Not what I expect from an Oolong. Not bad, but very different.

This tea is extremely woody. I get cinnamon stick—less cinnamon and much more stick. Another taster noted cigar ash, and I can only agree. It’s not strong, it’s just woody—did I say that?

I suspect this would be very good iced and with some sort of BBQ. The wood just begs for BBQ.

I just had an epiphany about this tea: It’s Thai, yes, Thai. As in the type of tea used to make “Thai Tea”… that overly sweet sugar and cream infused tea. I think I may attempt my own Thai tea; but with a bit less sugar and cream.
