Because this is a bit roasted you can see it in the grey-ish color of the rolled-leaves. I think this change-of-color to the eye is a nice one. With all the teas I look at it’s neat to see a ‘different’ one every once and a while. The aroma is potent…roasty, toasty, nutty, woodsy.
This infuses to a medium brown with a slight orange hue.
The flavor is of roasted nuts – maybe a combo of pine nuts and peanuts, moreso. It has a spec of charcoal taste to it but more notably a woodsy flavor paired with a brothy texture. The end sip I can also pick up on a hint of a fruity taste.
This is a satisfying and tasty tea. A very nice oolong.
