From Tee Kontor Kiel

This dreamlike Oolong speciality is from Tai Tung region in eastern Taiwan (=Formosa). Dark Pearl is a long oxidized Oolong. The leaves are picked and ball-rolled by hand.

Radiant amber cup with a fine fruity bouquet. Highly aromatic and manifold taste changing with every infusion. The complex aromas of this Oolong are spicy with a warm, mild sweetness and without any bitterness.

Dark Pearl Oolong from Taitung, Taiwan has very attractive dark dry leaves in ball shape, they adumbrate the origin of the name Oolong, black dragon. It gives a nice dark red brew many times in a row, tasting like dates, caramel and cinnamon. Overall, I think there are some more complex things missing out in this tea. It is very nice, but not very interesting. Ideal for a first encounter with Taiwan dark Oolong maybe, as it gives an obvious example of how sweet tea can be.
