This is a darker oolong — the leaves are a dark, chocolate brown for the most part. They’re of medium length and a little twisty. In the tin, they have a roasty, sharp smell.

Gaiwan, rinse, 195F, 15 secs + 5 cumulatively for later steeps. I did four because I am pressed for time.

The color is really pretty — coppery amber and clear. The tea smells just slightly roasty toasty. That’s not the dominant aroma, though. Mostly what I smell is honey.

And that’s mostly what I taste as well, through all steeps. There’s a hint of roastiness but no smoke, and the sharp note smooths out in the steeping.

I had expected peaches, apricots, stonefruits, but got honey. I’ll take it.

Plus the name is awesome!
