This one also came as a free sample with my first Vahdam order. I’m not usually a massive oolong fan, although there are some that really like. They tend to be in the minority, though. This one is quite nice – it’s a dark/roasted oolong, with some mild milk chocolate notes and a touch of caramelised sugar. Pretty sweet, on the whole, with just the tiniest hint of metallic in the aftertaste. After a few sips, I can detect a light nuttiness in the mid-sip – I’d call it hazelnut, if I had to pin it down, but it’s not super strong.
I like a nice chocolatey oolong, so this one’s close to being a winner with me. I’m not sure I’d buy a large bag, simply because oolong isn’t something I turn to all that often, but I’d certainly pick up the occasional sample.
