The bag has a roasted yet floral Tieguanyin or low elevation Taiwanese oolong smell. It’s definitely dark roasted, brewing red colored tea with a deep floral, nutty, and roasted aroma. There’s a slight caramelized sweetness, but it mostly tastes like almonds and peanuts to me. It tastes like a green oolong that was dark roasted, rather than a more traditionally processed oolong with a little more oxidation, so no fruit or spice or anything else that makes me love darker oolongs. To be fair, this was a dollar or two at Walmart, so I didn’t expect a great traditional style Tieguanyin or Dong Ding, and for what it is it’s actually fine, but it’s way too nutty for me to want more.
