drank Rou Gui Oolong Tea by Teavivre
225 tasting notes
It is a strong, untamed tea that is very smoky and peaty, with a touch of sweetness. This oolong is not complex but is very well put together, creating a feeling of warm comfort.

I find it to be a good alternative for smoked lapsangs, which I initially was a big fan of but cooled over time. Unlike them, this Rou Gui is less abrasive and more friendly and cozy.

Flavors: Peat, Pine, Roasted, Sweet

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
