Trying this today from the aged oolong sampler. Thanks again to*Liquid Proust* for all the work he did on this. I would say this is a medium roast tea. It’s also got a strong roast aftertaste. It tastes a bit of charcoal. It had some bitterness but not too much. This one is somewhere in the middle for me, not the best I’ve tried, not the worst. I am still not a big fan of roasted teas in general.

I steeped this tea 12 times in a 60ml gaiwan with 4g leaf and 200 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. I think this would go a few more steeps if I had a desire to continue.

Flavors: Roasted

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
