6/7/2015 : This charcoal roasted TGY cost too much to purchase and blend with at this moment so I will not be making a batch of this.
This tea is unique because the first step is semi sweet, yet each steep after gets most roasted in taste. Is this Orange Mate with Charcoal roasted TGY or Charcoal roasted TGY with Orange Mate? You will have to figure that one out as you resteep and sip :)
Charcoal roasted tieguanyin from China, mate infused with orange (orange peel and blossom), and a dash of licorice root..
“In the sort of screen dappled with different states of mind which my consciousness would simultaneously unfold while I read, and which ranged from the aspirations hidden deepest within me to the completely exterior vision of the horizon which I had, at the bottom of the garden, before my eyes, what was first in me, innermost, the constantly moving handle that controlled the rest, was my belief in the philosophical richness and beauty of the book I was reading, and my desire to appropriate them for myself, whatever that book might be.” Swann’s Way

I did a bit of a hmmm when deciding how to brew this one, so I defaulted to gaiwan because of course I did. The aroma is delightfully roasty, you know me and my love of char and toasted notes, the added mellow notes of orange peel and the really odd note of mate blend well. Mate is a strange thing, it smells vaguely of sage and burnt pinto beans, herbaceous and strange, but not in an unpleasant way.

I went for a couple steeps with this one too, it was wonderful experiencing the growth of the roasted notes, starting out as toasted sesame and roasted oranges and building to intense notes of char and wood. There was of course the mate, it did not necessarily clash with the oolong, but it is so strange tasting that it takes me out of the moment, the roasty toasty moment. As the steeps progressed the mate taste mellowed out and the orange notes increased, blending really well with the char, overall I had mixed feelings on this peculiar tea.

Not my favorite, but not the tea’s fault. I am not a fan of roasted tea, I’ve slowly learned. There is so much variety in tea, it takes me a long time to formulate strong preferences. It is naturally sweet though, which I like.

Not sure how this blend came about, but I do remember the curiosity of having a roasted tea with a mate. Thankfully I had some charcoal roasted tieguanyin available to blend with. I wanted something that would also resteep with a complete difference so I added some orange. The outcome is quite pleasing to me as this tea is sweet for the first steep and each steep after it becomes more roasty in taste and aroma. A rather enjoyable experience since mate holds up to multiple steeps and so can the oolong.


This sounds good!

It really is. The charcoal TGY is great by itself so it is so enjoyable to get to experience it take over as the mate and orange die out.
