Again another moment of silence for a company that is missed by the tea loving community. Every tea that I have from SpecialTeas is always fabulous. Thank you Mercuryhime for this one. I have a high liking for dark oolongs they definitely have their own unique characteristics. The dry leaf has a woodsy aroma to it. When I was putting the water in with the dry leaf I noticed a sweet cranberry honey like aroma. That lovely aroma transfers into the cup. Hints of honey, cranberry, bing cherry, maybe even a little bit of grapefruit hits the palette. However I what I find odd about this tea is it’s ninja like camouflage skills. The dry leaf is a dark brown but add hot water and you the green. A great oolong though. Ahhh SpecialTeas if only I had found you sooner(sigh).

I only regret not buying more when they had their going out of business sale. They didn’t advertise that they were going out of business and I didn’t need more tea at the time so I just let the 75% deals pass me by. Then, a long while later, they were still selling stuff at 75% off, and I asked myself, “how can a company have such an outrageous sale for such a long time and still stay in business?” Then it hit me, and I bought what they had left that sounded good. Unfortunately, not much good stuff was left by then. sad. :(

anyway, I’m glad you like this. I actually have another 2 oz bag that’s still sealed. good old sale…haha I’m not too fond of dark oolongs so let me know if you’re interested in more of this.
