This tea appears to be a darker oolong with very tightly twisted leaves. There isn’t much of a scent to the dry tea….after brewing there is a very slight sweet and woodsy scent. The taste is very much of a darker oolong – similar to a lighter black tea, slightly woodsy, and a hint of sweetness that reminds me of caramel/fruit hitting through the middle of the sip. This is a good oolong, but nothing about it is really spectacular. It is a nice drinking tea that you don’t have to pay much attention to.
