I am new to the oolong world,and I am loving it! This is my first experience with Big Red Robe. It’s a blacker oolong with a looong after taste. Chestnut and hazelnut like. Roasted pungency.

It’s interesting its claim is this tea “heals stomach ailments”. I had the tea with a greasy gyro. Usually, I have a little upset stomach but nothing. No tums needed! There might be something to this claim.

At first sip, I didn’t know what to think. After my second brew, I became a fan. It needs to win you over.

I’ve got some big red robe that I’ve been putting off trying, and I’m not sure why. But this review helps get me to stop putting it off and just try it already!

This has become one of my favorite teas. Impossible to oversteep, no need for sugar or milk, it is my go to tea. toasty w/o being smoky.

“toasty w/o being smoky” That’s exactly what is tastes like! Take the dive and try it. I had it sitting around, not knowing how nice is was.

I didn’t like the first steep of this tea at all. It seemed very astringent and almost a bit salty (I did rinse the tea before the first steep). But on the second through sixth steeps, it was great. The taste seems kind of toasty and a bit nutty. The flavor was full, even after so many steeps. I probably could have gotten even more steeps out of it, but wanted to start drinking something else for the evening. Considering I normally only drink flavored teas, I really enjoyed this one.
