This is super tasty! I am new to tea, and don’t describe them with much detail, but this one so far stands out to me. Nutty, a tad spicy, and a bit fruity. I prefer it warm.

A rare first flush oolong tea from the Darjeeling region of India. While it is fairly uncommon for an Indian garden to produce anything other than black tea, the growers at the Gopaldhara estate have produced this exquisite exception. Steeped in a quality that rivals its Taiwanese and Chinese competitors, the Ooooh Darjeeling is sure to produce both ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahs.’

Tasty oolong on the darker side of the oolong spectrum- It has a lot of the things I like about black tea without being too overbearing. Second infusion wasn’t as good as the first- more bland. Think I’m going to try a shorter steep time next time I try, to try and uncover some of the complexity other steepsters are talking about…
So far so good. The first steep is an interesting blend of an early picked oolong with all of the aromatic of a quality darjeeling black. A 30 second steep yielded a lot of flavor and a light golden color. Not my favorite oolong ever, but I will definitely drink it again. Well done for the first oolong from Darjeeling.
