From Stash Tea Company

Brandy Oolong gets its name from the beautiful brandy-colored liquor it produces. Compared to other oolong teas, Brandy Oolong is more oxidized, resulting in a smooth, complex cup. Lovely, lingering flavors of plums, figs and molasses are evident with each sip. In Taiwan, this tea is often served cold in a champagne glass for sophisticated sipping. Brandy Oolong is great for multiple infusions.

1.5 tsp for 300mL water @90C, steeped 8 minutes 45 seconds.

Yeah, 8:45. I got a phone call.

However, this tea stands of beautifully to a long steep.

Colour on my usual 4:30 steep is much the same as what I have here now, a medium copper that looks like a light Ceylon tea. This is a darker oolong than I usually drink, and it’s got a lot going on: molasses, figs, plums and a few other nots I can’t quite define. Nuanced. No bitterness, not even at 8:45. The shorter steep is much sweeter, but this robust beauty remains pleasant and complex. Well worth a try for anyone who likes oolong, and it might make a lovely foray into oolong for a tea drinker who likes the lighter black teas, like Darjeelings (though this has no astringency).
