From Tea Joint

An interesting blend of wild raw material harvested in forests in the Southwestern part of Taiwan.

The dry leaf includes tomato, dried pineapple, maracuya and a touch of chocolate. The heated leaf has notes of sage and fresh cucumber. The taste consists of orange peel, cinnamon, dried flowers with the classic slight Gaba sourness.The aftertaste is fruity and cool. Cha Qi is relaxing and refreshing.

A really lovely example of a GABA oolong here that has both complexity and depth that can sometimes be a bit lacking in this category. The body is medium with a lovely slick, oily liquor texture that’s super smooth at first and develops a bit of astringency in the finish. It does, nevertheless, have a subdued aftertaste. That would be my main objection with it I’d say.

As for the notes, the dry leaf aroma is a mix of cinnamon, peach, pear, danish pastries, custard, and chocolate – all blended into a pungent mix. After the rinse, scents of stone fruits, menthol, and brown sugar emerge to take over.

The taste is sweet and smooth with main flavours being represented by those of char, orange zest, and cloves. There are, however, many more fruity ones of varying intensity. In the aftertaste, I notice hints of oats, forest honey, and dried tangerine as well.
