Whee, posting again! Lately I’ve been mixing and stacking a lot of teas, which makes it hard to post tasting notes, but today I wanted a straight oolong so I pulled out another TeaFrog sample.
As a person who’s not enamored of Formosa Oolongs in general, this is a really tasty one. Rich, full, roasty flavor, a slight bitterness on the back, some flowers in the aftertaste (which is pleasant and lingering). There’s some fruit in the middle, though I’d peg it as more apple than peach.
Still have to see how it re-steeps, but I’ll definitely consider getting a full tin of this, and I’d recommend it to roasted oolong fans.
ETA: Got three solid steeps, increasing the time a little for each. The third was noticeably weaker, but still good. I probably won’t try for a 4th.
