Its a good Xing Ren. Almond aroma and taste, with a slick, oily texture. Thoughts of a dark forest, with bushes & trees. Oolong like this is my perfect horror novel tea :)
I like brewing western style, and as the liquid cools the tea takes on a more bushy form, almost gaining a jade oolong taste. its a nice mix, to start off dark brown, and end up greener. if you get my drift. It always has the almond oil thing going on though, so doesnt ever deviate completely from its nature, but nice to have these other thoughts going on, especially when reading the spooky stuff!
some hints of milk as an aftertaste lingering on my palette
id like to add that these woody tastes are really subtle thoughts, hidden in the oil. not as strong as something like an eight immortals, or other darker Oolongs i have tried, defo on the buttery/oily side of things.
