yum! received this generous sample from Hotsoup.
I normally love/drink green/light& medium roasted oolongs, and have not tried a coal -fired oolong before. This one is from 2001 and has been fried each year over and over again…

Initially, it smells like b-b-q. deep smoke with hints of wet woodland and mushrooms. Deep black, roasted nuggests.

liqour: black, almost like a black coffee.

Teapot: my Kamjove teapot, 200ml. 1 min. steeping time

Notes: very thick mouthfeel, cherries, plumps, chocolate, raisins…… it is SWEET. Huhh, that comes as a surprise….
No hints of smoke whatever…. just pure sweetness….

WOW this is complex …. I love it.
Absolutely great. Can be steeped 20 times plus at least.

Will def. look for more examples of aged/deep roasted oolongs!

Flavors: Almond, Apricot, Brown Sugar, Honey, Plum, Raisins, Smoke

Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 200 OZ / 5914 ML
