Very interesting tea.
I had tried only very few roasted Oolongs so far, have a preference for the greener kind. LeafSpa’s description is actually very accurate.
While at first I wasn’t convinced at all by that sense of powerful smokiness, I eventually understood how this tea had to be drank to be properly savored: slowly.
The taste actually evolves as you sip on this one. The obvious roastiness which I’m not too fond off is what initially hits you but it’s soon enough replaced by a lingering thick sweetness that is highly addictive. This is a tea that I had to get used to but have my first 3 cups I finally got it and now find it really enjoyable.
