From white2tea

Stone Sparrow is an oolong tea from the Fujian province of China.

This yancha [rock tea] is made from the Que She varietal. A savory thick roast lays atop woody fragrances and brighter red fruit and honey. An enjoyable tea from a varietal that is underrepresented in the Western market.

Sipdown! (2 | 279)

Grandpa-style tea of the day! This was a swap sample from an Instagram tea friend.

Very enjoyable! I admit, I have little experience with yancha, so I don’t really have a good palate for it. But I found this to be quite pleasant – smooth, woody, and roasty with a sparkling minerality and a floral uptick at the end of the sip, and a delicate fruitiness. I see the description mentions red fruits, I’m not sure I can identify that specifically. There is definitely a tartness to it that could be strawberry or red currant, or perhaps an underripe stonefruit. But it’s quite subtle to my palate.

Anyway, tasty! And took very well to grandpa-style, even though I forgot about it a couple of times.
