drank Autumn oolong by Rosali Tea
72 tasting notes

I’m completely obsessed with this tea. I got it in a long-ago subscription box and have been hoarding it. The leaves are long and dark and twisted very slightly at the edges. There are a few smaller dry, very light brown flat leaves mixed in. The smell of peaches is strong, and it tastes sweetly and naturally of peaches. It’s an amazing richly flavored oolong. I desperately want more,but Rosali Tea doesn’t sell it anymore and there’s no information on what region it’s from. I tried emailing them to no avail, so I guess I’ll just savor what I have.

Not sure if you have any dancong experience (you said you are new to puerh, right?) but sounds
to me like some kind of Fenghuang Dan Cong. Not sure about the flat lighter brown leaf but long twisty peach flavour, single origin is bang on the money.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much. I’ll look into that! I haven’t had any dancong experience! I’m still kind of exploring tea.

Well, dan cong means single origin/tree, fenghuang the area – ‘phoenix mountain’. And it can be very pricey. But the taste is out of this world.

My favourite vendors for this type are jingteashop & wuyi origin. Yunnan sourcing also stocks them but the first two have the edge.
