248 Tasting Notes
I jumped straight onto the Samovar website when Kevin Rose tweeted the special tea sampler that he was doing with Samovar – it had Maiden’s Estacy, Ryokucha, and this Wuyi Dark Roast. It’s been so long since I’ve had a wuyi oolong. My last one was the Wuyi Ensemble from Adagios (very delicious)! I can’t really compare the two since it’s been so long since I’ve the Adagio one. But I’m a big fan of the roasted/nutty taste of any wuyi tea.
I bought a bunch of different smokey teas from Chado in an attempt to find something as good as A&D’s Caravan. (My roommate and I totally depleted that one). This one is definitely my roommate’s favorite of the bunch, probably because of the earl grey. I prefer this one straight (as I do with most of my smokey teas), although I did try it with milk and it was pretty good as well.
