my very first Indian Oolong! I had a few darjeeling tea’s before but usually the regular black first or second flush tea’s, this on the other hand sounds special…
The leaf are big and look like a heavy roast chinese oolong perhaps a bit like a big red robe. But taste wise its different offcourse, i’m tasting a fruity fresh oolong with the same hints off muscatel a good first flush black tea has. Its sappy, but the sweet and sour note’s from the discription are not coming true on my tastebuds… perhaps its a personal thing i don’t know but i’m really enjoying this.
Gonna try a second cup in a few moments with a bit longer steep but for now this tea gets a descent score!
oh i forgot to mention i brewed this for 2min with 85°c water.
