Another tea from Dexter – thank you! So many tea’s from swaps, it seems like I don’t have my own tea.
I really enjoy these types of oolong’s. Charcoal with roasted notes to be found in the background. In this one I got some mineral notes as well. I appreciate that the charcoal notes in this tea aren’t so powerful that they don’t let the other flavours through. The brew is a beautiful colour – almost purple in the cup that I’m using.
The second steep didn’t work out too well – too bitter. But most likely due to my bad…water temp was too high, I think.
This is the type of tea that would be perfect on those crisp but sunny autumn days. I have enough for one more cup, and I’m gonna save it for that perfect autumn day.
