This is my default tea. Given the fact that I live above a tea shop that we own, that has to say something. I love this tea iced or hot, plain and adulterated. Brew a pot of this with a few slices of orange and pour over ice with a teaspoon of sugar (and a newer, prettier orange slice or two). Beautiful and decadent!
This tea is a very sturdy oolong, tending towards the black side. Nutty and rich, it has a wonderful toasty, smooth flavor, mild astringency, and a hint of sweetness. It is very, very good. I like this one equally as well for an eye-opener, with a late afternoon nibble, and for a relaxing evening pot. After taking a break from this one, I am always pleasantly surprised at how much I love this tea.
