From Teabox

This tea is chock-full of flavor and aroma in the manner of an oolong! The dry leaf is shockingly reminiscent of wine and roses tasting almost like a dessert wine or aperitif. The infusion is bright and attractive with a luminous coppery appearance, as well as reddish blush and greenish accents. It is one of those autumnal Darjeelings that is satisfyingly full of tannins but without any noticeable bitterness. This is a tea-lover’s tea for sure.

Perfect for an anywhere anytime tea, low caffeine, not much on flavor, some malt and I agree with Sherubtse, it seems to fit more in a black tea category than oolong.

Described as an oolong but brewed as a black – whatever one calls it, it is a lovely tea. First brew is tangy like a FF Darj, with noticeable tannins. Later brews produce softer tannins, and a bit sweetness, similar to a muted Ceylon.

First infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz water, 90 deg., 2:00 min.

Second infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz. water, 90 deg., 4:00 min.

Third infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz. water, 90 deg., 10:00+ min.
