This oolong has nugget-shaped leaves that are dark brown with reddish “highlights”. They brewed up a golden rod yellow with that characteristic oolong scent. This oolong is heavier than any oolong I’ve ever had! It almost doesn’t taste like what I think of as an oolong. It starts with a burnt sugar taste that morphs into a leather-like taste. Is that even possible in an oolong? It leaves a salty aftertaste. I can’t say that I enjoyed this one, but it was interesting, I’ll give it that! Thanks again to Stacy for this box!

Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Leather, Salty

Tea-obsessed, book worm scientist.

I love black tea, especially Chinese black tea- I’m looking at you Fujians and Yunnans! I also enjoy Indian teas, mostly first flush darjeelings (and a select few assams).
I think I’m recently starting to like oolongs better though- gasp! I’ve been cheating on my black teas with all these lovely, alluring green floral oolongs. Sorry I’m not sorry.
White tea gets a lot of love too! I am particularly fond of silver needle whites.
I can’t seem to appreciate green teas and rooibos is foul, IMO.

Other interests: Books! Board games! Nerdy entertainment like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, all the nature documentaries, etc etc. Also Disney!

I’m up for swaps!
