This is a super flavourful oolong tea, even really early on!! Medium roasty toasty goodness, with top notes of campfire wood, charcoal & semi salted peanuts, and more of a sweet cocoa and juicy overripe plum in the body of the sip. More fragrant and rich floral notes emerge as the leaves open up, married with the syrupy stonefruit/plum. It feels very deep and well balanced!
Maybe eight or nine steeps, wager I could’ve done another three or four though.
Now that I have a general idea of the taste, next time I think I’ll make this one up in my yancha yixing…

(Good song – but playing it a lot lately just ‘cause of Spooky Season, but it’s really awesome in general and I think I’m still gonna be hooked on it long after Halloween…)
