I am working on sipping this down and only have a few more cups to go, so I guess now is a good time for a tasting note!
This smells very roasty, a bit like a hojicha, and brews up nice and dark. There aren’t a whole lot of different notes to this tea, no complexity that comes out with additional steeping. I’m not sure I could distinguish this as an oolong, its certainly more hay and straw and lingering smoky notes than any floral or even big red robe tastes. It is rolled rather tightly and unfurls while steeping. Its easy to brew this one strong, but its too toasty to become bitter. I have enjoyed sipping down this bag, but won’t be purchasing any more.
