Not my favorite oolong. It’s the kind of oolong that tastes mainly like roasted barley. It’s much more complex than that, and if you like that flavor in your oolong, then I think this is a fine tea at a great price. It holds up the nutty, toasty, woodsy flavors through many steeps. I will likely keep some of this around, but may not be on my daily list. There’s a bitterness and a sweetness at the same time.

New to loose leaf tea and infusions.

Beer snob. Love to drink coffee, but there’s so much politics surrounding the coffee pots at my office, I just wanted my life calm and drama free. Tea and infusions are opening doors of flavor and serenity in my life. I like to create my own food recipes and such, so experimenting in tea was an obvious move once I got into it.

I’ll just put this right here in my profile: many black teas have an odd taste to me. I can only describe it as that they have the aftertaste like someone broke up a cigarette — including the bleached paper wrapper and plastic filter — and poured hot water over it and forced me to drink it on a dare.
