A whole bag of this and no note/review. Not surprising, I suppose. I inventoried my straight teas (the majority of them) a couple nights ago, and pulled out a bunch of 1-cup samples or badly stored teas to drink down quickly. This was one of em.
I didn’t honestly pay too much attention as I was drinking this, but I found it to be fairly flavourful and enjoyable – the first infusion (1 minute) was light and toasty, the second infusion (longer) was verging on syrupy, and had a delicious gui fei-type sweetness that I really enjoyed, along with more prominent “baked” flavours. Rather good. I’m looking forward to a couple more infusions tonight, before the leaves are done!
Definitely one of the better roasted/baked oolongs I’ve had.
