Just when I thought I was getting a handle on oolongs. With Charcoal Fire Roasted in the name, I was quite confident that this would be a highly oxidized dark oolong. Don’t get me wrong it is dark ish, but it’s more of a medium oxidized tea. I was just surprised at how green it was, and how large the leaves unfurled to.
This is a really nice oolong. There isn’t a lot of metallic taste, just woody, lightly smoked oolong. The second steep had some hints of floral coming through, you could taste some of the “green” ness that was still present. All in all I quite liked it and would order it again.
