987 Tasting Notes
I’ve been alternating between excited about and scared of this tea, LOL!
It SOUNDED delicious…then the dry leaf smelled kind of weird…then once steeped up it smelled delicious. I’m picky about my cinnamon teas so this was quite a gamble!
But I like it! I can’t really taste the puerh. Maybe it is adding to the earthiness of the coffee aspect of the flavor though. The cinnamon is definitely there but pretty mild. I don’t get the cookie part but I’m drinking this unsweetened and without milk. I have a feeling this is another one that would be really incredible if sweetened. I’m sure it would be fabulous brewed up extra strong with some sugar and cream, like a cinnamon latte :)
Thanks for the sample Angel and TeaVivre!
So excited to break in to my oolong samples, and this one was first on my list! I think Dan Cong is probably my favorite type of oolong, though I’ve only had a couple of different Dan Congs so far. This one is roasty and sweet, with a smooth sweet potato/honey thing going on. It is nice, but I prefer a more floral type of Dan Cong myself. If you like dark and roasty oolong you will probably dig this one!
