From Townshend's Tea Company

Also known as Rock Oolong because of Wuyi Mountain’s rocky soil. This is a Spring harvest leaf that is allowed to oxidize to around 40% before it is baked at 200 degrees for 3 hours. The resulting cup yields a unique smoky, earthy taste. Organically grown.

This is a great Oolong…This strong and fragrant tea is a must drink for Oolong lovers. It provided me with an introduction to the higher oxidized end of quality Oolong. I personally like to steep this tea many times in order to get the full extent of the flavours available in this leave. This tea has a very strong smell that I can only describe as being ‘dank’ and ‘roasted’. Friends of mine who don’t drink Oolong often seem to like this tea over less oxidized ones because it is so full of flavour and distinct.

The flavour changes as I steep it. The first two steeps contain flavours that are rich and earthy. I personally like the third steep the most because of the chocolaty flavours that can be detected. The flavour seem to coat the inside of the mouth and is a great tea to drink with food.

I love how this tea changes with each steep as well!

One of my Portland tea purchases, this is the first one I’ve tried now that I’m home.

Townshend’s Tea Company describes this tea as having a smokey, earthy taste. When a tea is described as smokey, I think of Lapsang Souchong. This in no way resembled a Lapsong Souchong. I tasted nothing smokey about it…

And that’s probably a good thing. As someone who doesn’t seek out smokey flavored teas, I find this (non-smokey) tea very drinkable. It’s hard to describe: it tastes like other teas I’ve had in nice Chinese restaurants. It’s subtle. It goes really well with food. It’s delicious!
