This is a great Oolong…This strong and fragrant tea is a must drink for Oolong lovers. It provided me with an introduction to the higher oxidized end of quality Oolong. I personally like to steep this tea many times in order to get the full extent of the flavours available in this leave. This tea has a very strong smell that I can only describe as being ‘dank’ and ‘roasted’. Friends of mine who don’t drink Oolong often seem to like this tea over less oxidized ones because it is so full of flavour and distinct.
The flavour changes as I steep it. The first two steeps contain flavours that are rich and earthy. I personally like the third steep the most because of the chocolaty flavours that can be detected. The flavour seem to coat the inside of the mouth and is a great tea to drink with food.
