This is a very tasty, reasonably priced Oolong from Dragon Tea House. It has that characteristic, slightly bittersweet oolong flavor. I do not know how to describe the main note in other terms. I am not sure what it resembles otherwise. I think it is unique to rolled oolongs in general. I have only gotten that flavor from Tie Guan Yin, Shan Linxi, Dong Ding, etc. I have never gotten that flavor from a Da Hong Pao. Those always have a roasted barley flavor. No roasted barley flavor here. This is excellent tea.

I steeped this once, western style in an 18oz teapot with 6.7g leaf and 190 degree water for 3 min.

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 6 g 18 OZ / 532 ML

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.
