From Mark T. Wendell

Made from a special cultivar of the tea plant unique to Taiwan, this offering is a highly oxidized (85-90%) oolong tea that has only recently been introduced to western tea enthusiasts. Also known as “Ruby-18", this style of oolong was initially created by crossing the Assamica tea varietal with the native tea plant to produce a tea that has become the favorite for tea enthusiasts of every age. When brewed, Brandy Oolong’s rich and amber brew hints of spice, cinnamon and sweet-creamy malt notes.

Hello, all!
I have been absent as of late because I have been trying to dwindle down my ever growing tea supply.
Quite proud that I am down to approximatively 35 teas.
Since I have been doing so well, I treated myself to a few teas when I made a recent Christmas order.
And this delightful tea was one of those treats.
The dry leaves are dark in color and there is a crisp earthy-ness to the smell.
The tea brews up to a lovely amber orange.
The tea itself smells quite different than the leaves, there is still a earthy type odor, but what comes out more prevalently is warm notes of chocolate and a tinge of spice and bright citrus.
Taste is a milder version of the smell.
A little spicy, slightly citrus, earthy chocolate.
Nice mouth feel.
Really is quite lovely and different Oolong.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

That’s impressive! :D I have like 40 teas in my “Daily Cupboard” :P

Hesper June

Thank you, JJ!
KS,Ysaurella, and WPTC, Well, I realized that I could not possibly drink all the tea that I kept acquiring before they started to age or change in flavor.
I decided that really did not seem fair to the teas, my palate or my pocket book. Sigh…I hate when I am sensible;)

JustJames

well, jane austen would be proud….. ‘sense and sensibility’ and all that! i’ve been sipping down fairly steadily. though i must admit i hoard my french teas in airtight containers. i sniff them, debate, and then put them away, lol.

i am amazed at the then and now of my tastes. where i began versus where i am…..

Hesper June

:)
Ah, yes, well, I think we all have those teas that we can hardly bear to drink as they just seem to special.
