Much lighter than it appears. Comforting and soothing in the way of many dark roast oolongs (and dark puer). The roast was probably a little too hot, as the leaves never fully open before breaking, but my friend told me that there are few true hand charcoal roasters left in Taiwan.

A tea geek (and also general geek) in Burlington, Vermont.

I’m drawn to the beauty of a steaming cup with snow falling outside. When I see a tea leaf, I see the long road and hundreds of hands that have brought it from the sun and soil to my pot.

I think that tea can be a way of life.
