Smells like I expect wuyi to smell: roasty, earthy/minerally/hot-rock-like, perhaps a little nutty.

Taste is similar, plus I am getting some notes that remind me of caramel, maybe even raisin.

I am getting a surprisingly mild mouthfeel considering the robust aroma. Pretty good deal on price, I’d buy it again.

I usually like to steep oolongs at a lower temp, but just a small amount of leaves at 200F for a minute or two or more seems to be best for me with this tea.

195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a young, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
