Enjoyed this session paired with some sweet, tangy and sour golden berries in between each steep!! My love of dark and roasted flavours but disinterest of coffee is definitely somewhat at odds with each other, and that’s wildly apparently when drinking this oolong. It’s expectedly very roasty tasting, though not as dark as you.maube might expect – and certainly not bitter. The taste, to me, is split between being very coffee-like but also somewhat cozy with notes of barley malt and brown rice. The liquor is also actually very, very smooth with great body and richness to it. I kind of don’t mind the parts of each steep that make me think of coffee; it very much works here!!
It’s absolutely insane to think that an aged tea from 2013 is ten years old; it feels like it was just a year or two back!! I would have been fresh out of highschool and definitely in the infancy of my tea drinking journey. What were you doing in 2013…??
