Autumn 2016 harvest.

Drank this alongside the 2016 tung ting and lost my notes in a freak browser accident. Fun times. This is Stone Leaf’s darkest roasted oolong at the moment, and the leaves have an appropriately roasty aroma. Steeps out a nice, deep amber that gradually lightens over subsequent steeps. The roast in this one brings with it a distinct, pleasant sourness that complements the vanilla notes and deep, dark sweetness present in this tea, and adds some complexity to the otherwise smooth texture.

I feel like this one holds up to additional steeps a bit better than the medium roast, maintaining its bolder flavor very well.

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
