This is a lovely, smoky oolong. It is smooth and impossible to over-steep. I drink it often, like today, by putting the leaves in the bottom of my Timolino and drinking through the filter. I am currently sipping on the third steep made this way and it is almost as flavorful as the first one. It has a smoky, woody flavor that makes me think of tea served at high quality Chinese restaurants. Definitely a keeper! My only complaint is the leaves are small, so I do need to brew with a filter.
