These leaves are very different than other Oolongs I have seen. While Steeping the wet leaves are a very vibrant green. I think these leaves are already screaming for a 2nd steep…but time will tell. Not much for aroma, really, it’s close to that of toast. The coloring of the tea-water is more of what I would think of as a green tea type color. As I sip the scent changes to a more masculine and outdoorsy type smell. For the taste it’s a drier taste for starters and gently transforms into something slightly sweeter towards the end of the sip. The more I drink the more I seem to enjoy it.
