I’m not entirely sure this isn’t the Big Red Robe oolong. It was a sample and just said ‘Rock Oolong,’ and I don’t want to mess up the Big Red Robe reviews if this isn’t it. The first steeping brought to mind a very slightly burnt grilled cheese sandwich, which, it turns out, is a great thing in a tea. After that, it got a bit fuller and sweeter, and I’m in love. There is a definite but light smokiness to it, which works even though I don’t seek out smoky teas. For some reason, I want to eat sushi with it. Not exactly a classic pairing I suppose, but it sounds lovely.

Yep! Definitely a Big Red Robe :)

Grilled cheese tea sounds weird LOL

Yep! We call it Rock here in our shop and some of the companies we wholesale to also call it that. I forgot that we have it on the website as Big Red Robe Dark Roast!

Received a sample in my last order. I think this is the appropriate one to file on Steepster? The label says Da Hong Pao in parentheses.

Brewed gongfu-style with a ceramic gaiwan. 10 second rinse. Steeping times: 5, 10, 20, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120.

Wet leaf has a roasty, fruity (blueberries, starfruit), and somewhat smoky aroma. The liquor has a beautifully rich golden color, and is clear, smooth, and thick in texture. The high point was infusions one and two – roast and quite juicy. Thereafter, the flavors weakened slightly. They were simply present, nothing more. They did leave a nicely sweet and fruit aftertaste once I finished each cup though.

Overall, this dark oolong lacked pizzaz and complexity, but it was alright.

Got this as a sample, decided to try it out.

I could not even bring myself to taste it, it smelled so gross. It was extremely smoky and even smelling it made me gag a bit.

I don’t think dark oolongs are my thing.
