I bought this and another aged Oolong from Red Blossom because I’d never had as old of ones as they had available and wanted to try them. I’m not a huge Oolong fan so I was curious is these would be different for me.
The smell of this tea is very “basic oolong” to me. It doesn’t have anything special about it. So I was worried it’d be another hum-drum cup for me, as I find most Oolongs tend to end up IMO.
The taste is another matter. It has that mint zing in the tip of the tongue and back of the throat. The raisin they mention is really there in the top of the mouth. The finish is the raisin/honey taste up in the nose. It’s a short finish, but pleasant.
It definitely not a standard oolong.
