From Yuuki-cha

A rare treat of JAS certified organic Japanese oolong tea single estate cultivated, processed, and packaged in Kagoshima, Japan. Due to its nature of being produced in Kagoshima, Japan it offers the drinker a completely exclusive drinking experience!

The dry leaf, which is semi-oxidized, is slightly curled, and gives off a pleasant chocolate-like aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth, sweet, and moderately roasty with a refreshing and clean aftertaste. It’s fragrant, soothing, and satisfying to drink! It’s Organic Kagoshima Oolong with its own unique twist!

Took longer than I expected to get back to this tea, and I went in a completely different direction: I was determined to get a mellow brewing, so used a small quantity of leaf and brewed up a whole thermos of tea with relatively cool water—185°F/85°C. This came out toasty, a little earthy, mellow and pleasant. I’ll work up from here now, to try to get more of those plummy fruity notes without reactivating the astringency that was off-putting the first time through.

Nicely intense and fragrant aromas of dark chocolate and cedar. Palate has good depth and persistence. Interest comes mostly from its different style to many other Oolong teas that I have had.
