This is one of two bagged teas I still buy on purpose. Similar to Foojoy Wuyi but even cheaper and tastier. I am sure it is rather one dimensional compared to loose but since I have never tried it loose I can pretend I don’t know better. It is a heavily oxidized oolong and makes a very dark cup very quickly. From what I have written in other reviews, I should hate this tea. Its roasted smokiness reminds me of smoldering leaves in the fall air. I claim to not like smoke – it just works here.
