Drank this one at work the other day. At work I have a bunch of teas that I brought from home, but all of the black teas I have there are flavoured, and sometimes I am just not in the mood for coconut or maple syrup in the morning. I brought over this wonderful oolong from home (yes I know its not a black tea, but the roast level on this one puts it more in black territory than green).
I remember the fist time I tried this one I thought the taste was a little off putting. I think that was long before I tried a few of the Rishi oolongs (FFS IPHONE STOP AUTOCORRECTING, OOLONG IS A WORD KAY?) and decided that I really enjoy the unique flavour of this type of tea. This one is quite nice, slightly malty and earthy at the same time but not overpowering. Quality straight oolong tea, love it! It’s actually very similar to the Ruby Oolong I finished recently; brews the same tone of Amber and has very similar flavour notes, just less of the cocoa/cherry undertones.
