Thumbs up!"This tea has a very silky texture to it with a bit of dryness at the end of each sip. It has a very rich flavor with malt, spices and dark molasses which becomes even thicker as it cools. Very tasty indeed"

markbrandyoolongI feel as though I am rather spoiled as I have spent the last couple days immersed in my sample of Brandy Oolong. This rather unique oolong is rather heavily oxidized and has just recently been introduced to those of us in the West. And boy am I delighted that it has finally made it.

The dry leaves are long and twisted and a dark chocolate brown. The aroma they give off is that of molasses. Once brewed, the liquor is a dark amber and the aroma is still that of molasses but with some spice too it now.

This tea has a very silky texture to it with a bit of dryness at the end of each sip. It has a very rich flavor with malt, spices and dark molasses which becomes even thicker as it cools. Very tasty indeed.

This is a tea that takes to being resteeped with grace. I was able to get resteep it four times with a fifth being very possible as the leaves had more to give. And at just over $4 an ounce, this tea is a real treasure at a very low cost. I know that I plan on picking some up the next time I order.

Water temp: 195 degrees
Steep Time: 2 minutes
