I won this from Cuppa Crew – yeah me! I am not ready to review this yet because I don’t think I steeped it correctly. Even so this is very different than any oolong I have had before. It reminds me of Darjeeling. It is almost a black tea with no smoke or roasted notes. Dry it smells of hay and bark. I can kind of agree to peach notes because I read it. I am not sure I would come up with that description on my own. I am getting light and fruity with wood notes. Well apparently I am reviewing this. This is not a bold black flavor. it is smooth Darjeeling with no astringency or bite. Two thumbs up!

Is this the same as a Bai Hao, or Oriental Beauty? I know that’s what Harney’s Fanciest Formosa Oolong is.

Ashmanra – I have never had an Oriental Beauty, but by the description it sounds pretty similar. This is from Taiwan but nothing like the highly floral Fong Mong teas and zero roasted notes.
