This is a lovely rich oolong. If you would like to try something a bit darker than a typical Ti Quan Yin, this one does not have the lighter, vegetal taste. Very smooth, nice aroma and a nutty barley flavor. Perhaps adding some honey it reminds me of a puffed cereal but can’t recall the name of it. There is a dry slightly tannic mouthfeel after.

The leaves look to have a couple more infusions in them. As a good oolong should.

Flavors: Dark Wood, Grain, Hay, Nutty, Roasted Barley, Smooth
