Oh wow, this is quite a different tea indeed. Take the Dancong Aria tea base flavor, and replace the flowery orchid taste with strong roasted coffee and chocolate tones, and that’s what this tea tastes like. Moderately astringent, high on body, yet light on mouth feel. The leaves are whole, large and very dark, but the brew is relatively light considering this…maybe I used too little? It tasted fine though. Definitely one of my favorite exotic flavored oolongs.
Dark Goddess Oolong
And now for something completely different! The Dark Goddess has brought together Chinese oolong methods and tea from an area outside Darjeeling to create a number of interesting characteristics. From the chocolaty aroma of the dry leaf to the roasted coffee flavor, Dark Goddess Oolong is not a typical tea by any means.
