I got a sample of this tea, the first Balhyocha I’ve ever tried, in Vancouver’s amazing O5 tea bar. The tea reminds me a lot of Oriental Beauty with its very fragrant and nectar-like quality, but it’s not as sickly and I find it more woody.

The aromas that this tea presents are a mix of fruits and wood. There are notes of cocoa, stone fruits, papaya, and orange. The taste has a similar character, with more of floral sweetness in the finish and aftertaste. The body is full and the mouthfeel smooth and thick.

I liked it, but I wish the tea lasted for a longer time both in terms of the steep count and the aftertaste.

First time trying this oolong from Korea in its Spring 2015 version. This is a new universe for me. The dry leaves smell nutty and remind me of high quality chocolate with a high cacao concentration. The wet leaves smell sweet with a hint of wood bark and blond tobacco leaf. The first infusion was really special with a very powerful cacao note that is very dark and has some sweetness to it, some clover honey at the end. Very long tasting note in mouth after this. This tea stays with you a while. The second infusion developed some white flower surrounded by cacao notes still. The sweetness slightly disappeared to give place to some green leaves of raspberry. the soup is orange and clear. the third infusion has some more oak honey this time and drifts on blond tobacco leaves and some spices developing very light clove and some freshness appearing at the end of the sip.

Gaiwan. Might be a little too dark for a gaiwan, but we’ll see.

I was slightly zoning out on the computer while sipping this, though. Mainly got chocolate and plums or raisins; sort of a dark fruityness. Something stickysweet hits you in the back of the throat, like maple.

I was just at O5 a few days ago while I was visiting Vancouver and that was one of the teas I tried.

@Jillian I got one of their sample sets with this and their Balhyocha Saebyok.
