This is a nice unflavoured oolong. Its quite a dark oolong with a bit of a black tea taste. cant say i really taste the caramel or sweetness like they say but but all round very refreshing and oolongy.

“A ‘black’ oolong with a smooth round woody character and a slight honey/fruit finish. One of my favourite oolongs!” Read full tasting note
“Love the balance between depth and refreshing quality.” Read full tasting note
Beauty in this case is in the eye of the tea-holder! This prized oolong is dark and robust, yet cushioned with sweet soothing notes of golden honey and buttery caramel. All this lusciousness is tempered by a fruity freshness that is oriental opulence personified.

Another weekend morning, another T2 sample. Life is good.
Aroma: Marmalade and spice with a comforting sweetness. Subtle woody notes. There is a slight hint of bergamot in there too which reminds me of an earl grey. All in all more akin to a western black tea than a roasted Oolong but still with that characteristic dark Oolong candied orange peel that makes it entirely something else.
Flavour: The flavour profile reminds me a lot of ‘chinese herbal jelly’ – herbaceous, complex, slightly sweet with a faint iodine touch. Strangely alluring despite not being the sort of flavour which normally draws me in on a black tea. There is a faint burnt sugar/caramel layer in there. The underlying spice and subtle woody notes remind you what you’re drinking. The second steeping is all woody sweetness. Comforting. Pleasant. But hardly exiting.
Overall: This is an entirely pleasant semi-fermented oolong, but to be honest, it doesn’t captivate me the way some others have. It has enough backbone to stand up well to food though, and would be a perfect partner to dim-sum. All in all: not bad, but for the price there’s other teas i’d pick above it.
