I was curious about this tea. I love oolongs, but it’s the soil that helps bring out specific oolong flavors when the tea is made. What type of tea would a different soil produce?
This tea doesn’t quite taste like oolong. It’s aroma is of smoked wood and earthy smells — not something I expect out of an oolong. There are hints of nuts & chocolate, but nothing very distinct. It has a medium mouthfeel, and taste surprisingly like a generic, but decent black tea.
This is a decent “run-out-of-the-door” tea, or a tea that might pair well with a slightly sweet cookie/biscuit, but nothing I would take time to rightful savor.
