From JK Tea Shop

Da Hong Pao oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and specially Wuyi rock tea taste and fragrance. All Wuyi rock Oolong tea has its unique rock tea taste and fragrance, which the other Oolong teas do not possess the characteristics. The rock tea taste and fragrance can be described in the four aspects: aroma, cleanness, sweetness and animation.

Though our this tea is from Ban Yan areas, its rock fragrance and taste is still quite strong, and highlights with fresh, soft tea soup, clean flower aroma and strong sweetness.

All of our Wuyi rock tea is baked extremely slowly by charcoal, and only arrive in the market in August of every year. So the new Wuyi rock tea still has a little bit charcoal feeling in taste. As the tea breathe under the air, the charcoal aroma will disappear slowly and the tea’s original taste and aroma will come out.

All of medium to high-roasted Wuyi rock tea can be stored for over 2-3 years.

Searching for a roasted oolong in my sample drawer, I found this one buried way down at the bottom of the drawer – I believe it was a sample sent to me quite a while back by the company to try out/review. Oops.

I had this one later in the evening – I slept basically all afternoon after a night of insomnia, and all I wanted (more than anything else) was roasted tea. Let me tell you, this PERFECTLY hit the spot! It’s a pretty heavy, toasty taste for something “medium roasted” but I’m feeling it! Early steeps are all about roasted chestnut, dark leather, and instant coffee ground notes with a brassy, mineral heavy finish…

Thins out after about five or six steeps but holds its flavour, just not the body. The flavour drops out around steep eight, and then it’s a quick decline. It was a good ride, though.
