I received this from nxtdoor a while back. Bonsaii Hill is a local store for her, and I don’t have much info on this. I steeped it like I would any other darker oolong.
This one is quite good in my opinion. I would say this is about a medium oxidized dark oolong. It’s fairly mild, but not green (no grassy and only the barest hint of floral)., there isn’t much of what I consider classic oolong taste. It’s fairly sweet with definite honey notes. I would like this more if it were more oxidized, but all in all quite good.


They really need to do a better job with their website if they want to sell tea. I doubt that the tea drinking population of Aurora, ON is enough to keep him going.

This is my first Red Robe. The description is rudimentary because Bonsai Hill is not on Steepster, their website doesn’t have a description of products or anything aside from store hours, location and the types of products sold, so I can’t retrieve any information. I can look up Red Robe on line, as can you. I don’t know much about Bonsai Hill’s Red Robe so I can’t in good conscience make stuff up and pass it off as legit.

This reminds me a lot of Tao Tea leaf’s Shui Xian Lao Cong. A lot.

It smells roasted, has long dark twisty leaves, and it brews pale brown. I suck at describing oolongs and I think I overstepped this one a bit because there’s slight bitterness. And the nice thing about it is that it does taste like you would expect it to after smelling the dry leaf. A nice cup, will likely restock for those days when I feel like straight tea. I can’t do straight blacks yet (shudder) and straight greens don’t do much for me.
