drank Balhyocha Noeul by O5 Tea
14 tasting notes

First time trying this oolong from Korea in its Spring 2015 version. This is a new universe for me. The dry leaves smell nutty and remind me of high quality chocolate with a high cacao concentration. The wet leaves smell sweet with a hint of wood bark and blond tobacco leaf. The first infusion was really special with a very powerful cacao note that is very dark and has some sweetness to it, some clover honey at the end. Very long tasting note in mouth after this. This tea stays with you a while. The second infusion developed some white flower surrounded by cacao notes still. The sweetness slightly disappeared to give place to some green leaves of raspberry. the soup is orange and clear. the third infusion has some more oak honey this time and drifts on blond tobacco leaves and some spices developing very light clove and some freshness appearing at the end of the sip.

Flavors: Bark, Cacao, Honey
