Still in the package, this Indonesian Oolong has a nice delicate and recognisable, likeable and warm fragrance. The leaves are rolled and somewhat resemble gunpowders, also by the colour.

The taste is quite lovely: smooth and rich, yet light, not far from sweet, still grassy. I would say it inclines towards the green end of Oolong. Some discreet astringency in the aftertaste but you will have to look for it. The fragrance of the dry leaves made me have some olfactory expectations, which were not fully met by the infusion: it smelled a bit too grassy for me (but the smell is rich, perhaps also a touch of hay), particularly on the first steep.

A decent tea, enjoyable and not bad at all but I am not sure if I would buy it again. Still looking for perfection and character.

Flavors: Grass, Green Melons, Mushrooms
