From Irie Tea

"A robust and toasty oolong from a dense wilderness in the Wu Yi Mountains. The rich mineral soil of the Wu Yi Mountains helps to create very unique teas that can not be produced any where else."
On the website.
On the bag, "A robust oolong from the Wu Yi Mountains. The scent is of orchids and the flavor toasty bamboo. An all time favorite.

I chuckled to myself when I saw the words ‘black tea’ on this package as I saw Wu Yi Oolong… come on now, really?

The toasty bamboo is actuate to explain this tea. It’s a nice cup of relaxing warmth that goes down slowly. I quite enjoyed it as expected since it’s an oolong :)

I am really glad you like it. :) The bamboo is my favorite thing about it though woodsy teas are hit or miss for me.

Before you laugh the definition of what is a an Oolong and what is a black tea grown in the Wuyi seems to be very much a grey area at least from my experiences dealing with sellers from the area I’ve seen dhp listed as black tea and Lapsang, and jinjunmei sold as Oolong’s. I’ve had Lapsang that had the creaminess of an Oolong as well. So this description actually fits within how many Teas are sold in this area.

Since I keep coming back to it, I’m upping the rating. I’ve gotten some guava notes the last few times I’ve had it. I’m also fairly convinced that this is a Dan Cong. Dan Congs, Qilans, and some Shui Xians are officially my favorite yan chas.
