drank Rou Gui by Life In Teacup
1326 tasting notes

I don’t have a picture or a seller description for this one.

The dry leaves a big and dark. They turn black after steeping. While steeping the roasty aroma pours out of the press. This appears to be a medium-heavy roasted Wuyi oolong. The taste is not what I expected.

Sure it has the heavy dark roasted flavor but it also has a prickly fruity/floral thing going on that is somewhere between mango and geranium.

Next I added sweetener to see how it would react. It did not cover or bring out any flavors. What it did was warm the flavors so the melded together. The roasty notes a less dominant early in the sip and explode later. The fruity/floral is now more developed into something resembling tieguanyin.

If you like the darker oolongs this was an interesting one.
