Confession time. I got this for 4.99 at an Asian market, solely because I loved the tin. I’d gone in looking for cheaper teas to use in the bath, and this one caught my eye for the container more than anything else. I do love a good oolong though, so I was hopeful.
When I opened it, the tea was in a plastic bag inside the tin. Once the bag was pulled out (carefully so not as many leaves got broken) and the tea was in the tin, it was definitely a full container.
The tea itself is very roasted. I did a steep with it tonight and the first steep was totally a roast flavour, but when I added some sugar honeyed notes came out.
Since I’m not a roasted oolong fan, I passed on doing other steeps. However if anyone out there is a fan of roasted, this is definitely worth a try if you spy it around.
