I am relatively new to drinking roasted oolongs. The information on the YS website says this has been roasted three times over the course of nearly a decade. Despite this, the roasted flavor is not at all overbearing. It has a deep, juicy flavor that lingers on the palatte. It reminds me of coffee, of the first time the furnace is turned on for the winter, of dark bourbon and water. This may be the tea that turns me on to this style.

Flavors: Cherry, Coffee, Plums, Roasted, Stonefruits, Whiskey

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 0 min, 15 sec 7 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

‘Iron Arhat’ was my favourite of theirs, its worth a try, gongfu with quick steeping it lasted & had creaminess that made it stand out as really nice. http://steepster.com/teas/yunnan-sourcing/40852-tie-luo-han-iron-arhat-premium-wu-yi-shan-rock-oolong-tea

Many of my steeps were probably closer to boiling. Often I start with near boiling water and allow it to reduce in temp. as I progress through steepings. I didn’t refresh the water with this one though allowing it to cool considerably.

Attempting to live a simple life in Kansas City with my amazing wife and five wonderful children. I have approximately 1,752 interests and right at the top of that list is tea. I am a big fan of unflavored teas of all sorts. I will always try something new.

I went for a long time without rating or reviewing teas. I tried, I really did, but it always seemed that by the time I had put the experience into words I had lost the experience that I had originally fallen in love with. Tea for me is best as it is. In the leaf. In the pot. In the cup. Now I am finding myself years later and wishing I had a better record of the teas I have tried, something, oh I don’t know, like a tea log… And so I am attempting to leave tasting notes on here again.

I am never short for words when it comes to tea, so if you want to talk or try anything in my cupboard don’t hesitate to ask.
