Oh my. I have finally lost my mind. I was looking for my tasting note on this one, only to realize I hadn’t written it yet. Eek.

This is a moderately roasted oolong. The leaf really expands when brewed. The aroma is moderate roasting with light orchid floral notes. The sip is very nicely balanced. The orchid notes rise up and the roasted one drop just a little. No bitterness or bite, but some dryness. This has a good presence of honey like sweetness. It is also nutty.

My own preference is for greener nonroasted oolong but otherwise there is certainly nothing wrong with this cup. Since there are only two ratings at this point, I will rate this one.
