From Yunnan Sourcing

This roasted tea is made from Premium “AA” Grade Ben Shan oolong of Anxi county, Fujian. The tea was roasted for about 6 hours at a temperature of about 48C. This roasting gives the Ben Shan a nutty and sweet taste.

There is a slight milk aroma (nai xiang) that is present when brewed.

I was pretty sure I had reviewed this before, but oh well.

~80 deg. C for 4.5 minutes, ~1 tbs leaf in 600mL hot water.
2016 harvest

I’m watching this great documentary called “The Raw and the Cooked” about traditional Taiwanese cooking and I feel the need to drink oolong now. I know this one is from Anxi, China, however it is the only oolong I have with me.

This light roast smells more like a medium roast and gives a bit more of a toasted grain and mineral flavour to it. The roasted flavours in oolongs are always difficult to desribe, but I guess it is similar to toasted barley or whole grain toast. There is a bit of creamy mouthfeel, but not as much as one would hope for from a jade oolong (does a roasted oolong count as a jade oolong? idk what counts).
