Thank you derk for this tea. Aged oolong? Well, I am interested in!
I made quite fast rinse, but not so fast to call it flash. Then I let the leaves rest, for maybe 5 minutes. And then first steeps. First one was 30 seconds long and… yeah it brought dark chocolate notes. And raspberry jam. Both pronounced in aroma as well in taste. There is as well roasted flavour, some sweet – almost sugary notes (but not white sugar), little bit of mollases. Smooth, no astringency there.
2nd steep was 45 seconds long. It was very similar, maybe the chocolate was bit stronger.
It is nice tea, although, probably, not my most favourite.
3rd, 50 seconds – roasted nuts aroma came. So does roasted taste. It’s nice!
I stopped counting time. But made several more steeps. Not a single one was bad. All of them. Wonderful experience. No rating so far.
