From Octavia Tea

This exceptional, competition-grade oolong is composed of tealeaves rolled into dark, lustrous little pearls. When brewed, its rich, caramel color is similar in appearance to a fine, aged brandy. Tremendously complex flavors of roasted brown-sugar, molasses, nutmeg, raisins and figs evolve into a lingering, caramelized-honey persistence in this sophisticated cup. Often a favorite among connoisseurs, oolong tea is rich in antioxidants and metabolism-boosting properties.

Compared to other oolongs, Brandy Oolong is more oxidized, which gives it a richer, deeper flavor profile that is closer in character to a black tea than a green tea.

Received this in the Tea Thoughts holiday advent. I had been putting off trying it, as I thought it was going to be a charcoal roasted oolong, which I am just sick of. Luckily, I gave it a chance and was very pleasantly mistaken.

This is super complex, and tastes like a cup of dried fruits stewed in honey. Super smooth and sweet.

Sipdown (116)!

My last Octavia Tea blend! I had a really fun time exploring their company’s blends, and I think a found a couple winners so maybe an order’ll be in my future. I know I was talking this morning about getting more of the Dark Rose Hearts in Steepster chat, and I find myself craving the Mango Sorbet; so who knows!

- Slightly more leaf this time to prevent winding up with an under leafed third cup
- Also paid much more attention taste wise
- There’s totally a yeasty/malty quality still, but also a sweet fruitiness
- Can’t quite put my finger on what fruit but I suppose in that regard it IS brandy like
- I actually really like this one, and find it to be quite smooth
- Would totally drink it again, maybe would purchase another sample size amount
