drank Oolong Dan Cong by T2
28 tasting notes

A fairly oxidated dark oolong from T2 that produces a wholly savoury experience.

Aroma: Woody with burnt toffee and pine cone notes.

Palate: The dominant flavour is a strong ‘woodyness’ with earthy notes and soft tannins. Some light chocolate flavours linger in the mouth, yet this tea has very little sweetness.

Overall: Not one of my favorites. I prefer my dark oolongs with delicate, floral or fruitcake notes. I would possibly prefer this a little less steeped, but I still think it lacks the delicate complexity I’m after. Good for two steeps or three if steeped for a shorter time (I’d usually expect a third or fourth from a top oolong). All in all not a ‘flawed’ tea by any stretch, but not one that suits my palate and not one that I’ll be reaching for again.

Flavors: Caramel, Pine, Smoke, Wood

Tea Glorious Tea!

Since a trip to Japan as a young lad I have had a growing obsession with tea. Oolongs are my all time favorite but I love almost all green and white teas and love trying anything new.

I’m just starting out on Steepster but am looking forward to uploading a whole bunch of teas in the future!

I’m always keen to review sample teas so please PM me if you would like some reviews done!
