This tea is heavily roasted, but it is less austere and dry than a typical Da Hong Pao (my measuring stick for roasted Wuyi oolongs). It is more desert-like with floral sweetness and some minerals. The strongest point is the lovely fragrance of osmanthus and orchids.

A solid choice for those liking roasted oolongs or just as a change of pace for the rest of us.

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
