From T2

Beauty in this case is in the eye of the tea-holder! This prized oolong is dark and robust, yet cushioned with sweet soothing notes of golden honey and buttery caramel. All this lusciousness is tempered by a fruity freshness that is oriental opulence personified.

This is a nice unflavoured oolong. Its quite a dark oolong with a bit of a black tea taste. cant say i really taste the caramel or sweetness like they say but but all round very refreshing and oolongy.

Another weekend morning, another T2 sample. Life is good.

Aroma: Marmalade and spice with a comforting sweetness. Subtle woody notes. There is a slight hint of bergamot in there too which reminds me of an earl grey. All in all more akin to a western black tea than a roasted Oolong but still with that characteristic dark Oolong candied orange peel that makes it entirely something else.

Flavour: The flavour profile reminds me a lot of ‘chinese herbal jelly’ – herbaceous, complex, slightly sweet with a faint iodine touch. Strangely alluring despite not being the sort of flavour which normally draws me in on a black tea. There is a faint burnt sugar/caramel layer in there. The underlying spice and subtle woody notes remind you what you’re drinking. The second steeping is all woody sweetness. Comforting. Pleasant. But hardly exiting.

Overall: This is an entirely pleasant semi-fermented oolong, but to be honest, it doesn’t captivate me the way some others have. It has enough backbone to stand up well to food though, and would be a perfect partner to dim-sum. All in all: not bad, but for the price there’s other teas i’d pick above it.

Price: AUD$38/100g

A ‘black’ oolong with a smooth round woody character and a slight honey/fruit finish. One of my favourite oolongs!
