While infusing I’m picking up an aroma combo of Veggies, Flowers, and Mushrooms! I went the suggested 45 seconds.
On the tongue – it’s floral and vegetal but also slightly sweet. I can pick up honey-notes but they are more of the malty-side of honey and not-so-much the sweeter-side of honey, if that makes sense.
It certainly DOES have a unique taste/flavor. I appreciate that very much! I can’t really compare it to anything else I have tasted…and I LOVE that about it, too!
It has certain traits of an oolong but also certain traits of greens and blacks, too! I think that is why I am pondering this one so much! It’s really neat!
As it cools at room temp I can taste it morphing into more of a greener oolong.
Excellent Oolong to Stew over :)
