This reminded me a lot of Butiki’s Purple Sunset, but less sour. It also has some similarities to certain Chinese black teas, with cocoa notes and hints of dried apricot. It’ was very slightly astringent and medium dark. There were even some spice notes that made me think, oddly enough, of Constant Comment. It didn’t have so much of that distinct oolong taste—if I hadn’t known it was an oolong, I’d probably have guessed it was black. Since oolongs aren’t generally my favorites, this was no bad thing in my book.
