This must be why people like oolongs! My initial affair with Kwan Yin left me really surprised when it seemed like every other oolong just tasted like wood, nothing, or nothing with a clean aftertaste of wood, but Da Hong Pao is quite tasty. It’s definitely got the clean, woodsy taste characteristic of oolong, but with more…I don’t know, flavor to it? It’s fuller and fruitier than, say, formosa oolong, and I like it infinitely better. There’s also a sort of sweetness to it that I didn’t really get from other non-flavored oolongs. I am a fan.
