The name Dark Roast is an homage to coffee. Coffee drinkers are going to love this tea. It is bold and intense. It is also a very traditional rock oolong from Wuyi Mountain, roasted slowly four times over charcoal.
I drank this tea with my friend Javan. In the nose he caught coffee, then horseradish, then suddenly we were at a steakhouse. This tea is a full night on the town. You can catch desserts, drinks, cigars, and even some entrees in the aromas. It’s very evocative. I know that foodies will love it. Bring it out when you have time and space to enjoy its rambunctious abundance.
Aroma: cocoa nibs, coffee, fresh horseradish
Flavors: burnt caramel/condensed milk, tobacco, bergamot
