Another tea I have the chance to taste thanks to cteresa , obrigada Teresa .
It is an Oolong and an highly oxidized variety .
I decided to brew at 100 ° c as Teresa wrote no indication and because I am a phenomenal lazy people and don’t want to go to check on MF’s website (which by the way often gives wacky brewing indications on this site)
The liquor is quite dark for an Oolong , meaning we are drinking an highly roasted variety.
The taste is strong too. The flavours that emerge in the first place are earth, malt, wood.
The aftertaste reveals some cocoa notes and a fairly pronounced fruity note . I am unable to identify the fruit, stone fruit but which one?
It is not a great roasted Oolong but it is more than respectable .
Ultimately the site Mariage gives no recommendations for infusion , incredible isn’t it?
