Another tea from my Canton Tea sampler. I really enjoy Dan Cong tea, and especially love oolong. This one was no exception.

These tea leaves are very dark. They smell roasted. 195/3 min. Whoa. I can smell the roasted leaves quite clearly from across the room. It’s quite fragrant, actually. The liquor is dark, a medium-dark brown. The taste is lovely. It’s quite intense for an oolong. Very roasted, to match the scent. I’m not picking up that much fruitiness, but there is definitely a sweetness to it that I can’t quite put my finger on. It lingers for quite some time after taking a sip.

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
