The style of processing seems similar to a Dan Cong oolong, although it’s not quite as aromatic. Admittedly, the price is also lower though.
Overall, it has the qualities of Dan Cong oolongs as well. The smell is slightly floral and reminiscent of forest floor, especially the conifer forest kind. The tea is medium bodied with buttery mouthfeel. The taste is round, balanced and quite mineral. There is a decent bitterness and tanginess and the aftertaste is also decently strong with floral and sweet notes. Throughout the session the tea becomes a little more fruity. In particular, I get some dried fruit flavours.
This is the first oolong from Africa for me, but I found it very enjoyable, even though maybe it lacks the complexity of high end oolongs.
