I love Alishan. Of the many types of Oolong teas available, Alishan is probably my favorite. I can’t think of another Oolong type that I enjoy more than Alishan. But, I didn’t know how the charcoal roasting would affect the delightfully floral, sweet, crisp flavor of the Alishan that I know and love.

I am glad that I can taste those notes of the Alishan, as well as a foreground of toasty, charcoal-y, earthiness. Sweet, roasted nut flavor melds so beautifully with the floral notes, giving this Alishan a more rugged flavor, more masculine in a way, but still keeping in touch with its light and flowery side too.

Truly a delight … deliciously different.

YUP! This is Alishan – Medium Charcoal – that sums it up!

The Alishan is lovely and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to still taste it the way I was hoping…but I can and I’m VERY pleased!

The Charcoal is pretty good as well! At first I thought it was a bit stronger than what I would consider Medium-Roasted but after a few sips I totally agree!

Right in the middle of the sip I can taste a welcoming creaminess ‘sandwiched’ inbetween the roasted and charcoal tastes at the beginning and end of the sip.

This is a nifty Charcoal/Alishan! NUMMY NUMMY!

Full review tomorrow – April 8th on http://sororiteasisters.com/ So I have taken my first sip and oh my goodness, this is delicious! As I taste fruity notes, smokiness, and mineral notes. There is a wonderful sweetness to this tea, a brown sugar or German rock sugar sweetness, somewhere in between the two. I am not getting as deep of a sweetness of a brown sugar, but there is something a little more to it, like a caramel perhaps.

I also get a lovely white flower note as well as a green note, but not green like vegetal, more green like greens themselves, almost like dandelion leaves.

This tea is a must try for anyone who loves oolongs, especially darker roasted oolong tea.
