A very pleasant, uncomplicated, and medium-bodied oolong here. It is highly oxidized and smells a bit like some Taiwanese black teas – sweet, flowery and nutty. There are only few woody or forest-like notes though, they come throughout the session.
The taste, on the other hand, is quite woody and bittersweet. The pear flavour that is characteristic of similar GABA teas is here as well, but in moderation. Late steeps veer into more vegetal and herbaceous territory that’s a little bit like a that of some Dong Ding oolongs. In the aftertaste, I get a nice molasses sweetness that accompanies mild fruity sourness.
