I’m glad I asked Cindy whether there was an oolong version of her wild growing lapsang souchong; she said there was a very limited quantity and that there was already a line of orders before the tea was even completely processed. I’m glad I got in line on time!

The closest thing I can compare this to is a very lightly roasted Wuyi oolong, as it has a distinctive savory-sweet mineral/rock quality to it in both aroma and flavor. The leaves have an intriguing fragrance that reminds me of roasted sweet tomatoes and orchids. Initially, the tea soup is a dark gold tiptoeing towards light orange.

The tea is very pure and lively in taste and feel. Very nice mouthfeel and qi. It’s crisp and decently thick in texture. It’s also well structured and persistent in the mouth after drinking.There is distinctive Wuyi mineral/rock taste, shuixian-like floral notes, vine tomatoes, brown sugar, and roasted grain. It goes for about 9 steeps but can be pushed further. Flavor, mouthfeel and aftertaste are consistent throughout. I need to do a few more sessions using slightly different parameters. Very unique and tasty oolong!
