The initial smell left me with some trepidation. I have loved the leafhopper bitten teas up to this point but this smelled just like the oolongs that made me think I didn’t like oolongs. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. Woodsy, vegetal, juicy, I totally get the burnt toast notes but not in a bad way, if that makes any sense.
This is a darker oolong than I am used to trying. For that reason, I am not giving it a rating – no experience with it and while it will all be used eventually and I won’t dislike doing it, neither will it be replaced in my cupboard. :)
