From Shanti Tea

Likely one of the best dark oolongs we have ever tasted, and a consistent best-seller, this oolong is cultivated from the Wuyi Mountains in Nanping Prefecture. The Wuyi Mountains have been recognized by UNESCO as a site of incredible and unique biological diversity, and has been defined as a zone of conservation. Wuyi Oolong is grown in this region, and is harvested only in very small quantities so as to not tire the plants. As this particular style of oolong production is not unique to this region, the remarkably chocolatey and earthy fragrance, and the complex flavour profile, is entirely due to the climate and soil conditions of the Wuyi Mountains. No other dark oolong has this distinct flavour profile. Do not miss this one!

A really lovely Oolong – rich and nutty in flavor, with underlying tones of fruit and spice. It has a smooth taste.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try!

Right out of the envelop this smells nutty to me! Almond, perhaps!?

As if infuses it starts smelling more woodsy…like a damp twig.

This is a hearty brew! Quite masculine, woodsy, slightly peppery…a little like roasted/toasted nuttiness! It has a gentle-semi-sweet after taste.

This is interesting, different, and pretty good!

(This tea was generously provide to me by Shanti Tea. Thank you Team Shanti.)
Dry Leaf: Subtle smokey aroma.
Wet Leaf: I get more of a smoke aroma.
Liquor: Medium to dark amber color.
Taste: This tea has a smooth smoke flavor with a touch of sweetness.
Overall Opinion: I give this a 87. This tea reminded me of a Lapsang Souchong without that pine aspect. I would have expected this tea to be more of a Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) but there wasn’t that tart or tangy or even sour aspect to this tea. So, if your looking for something more like a Lapsang Souchong than a normal Wuyi Rock than you have found it.

This tea had a very smoky flavor to it and my taste buds were dancing as I drank it. One of the most bold tea drinks I’ve had. It made me wonder what food item would go well with its unique flavor.

Flavors: Smoke

Rock tea yencha
I first smelled the tea and literally had to smell and re-smell the tea over and over. The smell reminded me of Abuelitas coffee chocolate thing (Mexican item)). It also tasted similar. Not exact but it did remind me of a happy memory of my family making hot chocolate by fire.
