Dark Roast RouGui

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)




This oolong is grown high atop Mt Wuyi at 350-470 M in elevation.
It is uniquely dark roasted to bring out a bolder flavor profile than its lighter roasted counterpart but still highlights the cinnamon/cacao flavor profile. The tea plants are 4-30 years old and take up a space of 2.5 acres.

Each infusion will bring forth a new layer of depth. We recommend short steeps to get the most out of this taste profile.

The taste of this tea is full bodied with a cinnamon spice aspect and a caramel bread like aftertaste. Deep and robust for an oolong but we find that the complexity of this tea will surely keep you coming back for more. The energy from this tea is strong with a masculine feel providing some with a boost in stamina and vitality.

    I’ve been craving something dark, so I grabbed this to give it a go. The leaves are long blackened strands. They give a nice scent of ash, char, cinnamon, and some smoke, but there is a lingering sweet fruit in the background. I placed a fairly good amount in my warmed gaiwan and shook it up. The scents deepened to more roasted tones. I took in some damp char, roasted cinnamon, and some burnt sugar. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves are smooth and oily with some green spotting. The liquor was thick and bronzed. The initial sip gave some great mouth feeling. I took in a smooth and toasty brew. The drink gave me a lot of warming feelings. The cup was toasty and carried brief mineral tastes. The full mouth feeling began with a light cinnamon, and then it deepens to a more coffee or coffee grounds like taste. The aftertaste was fantastic. My mouth got a “thirst quenching” feeling. The brew itself is very aromatic. My cha hai emitted heavy roast and cooked fruit scents. This was a nice brew. The drink had a decent body and smooth flavors. I also noted a focused head feeling. The flavors were prominent and curbed, but they were not overly complex. I enjoyed this tea, and I feel it would make a great morning starter or coffee substitute.
