If you love the roasted flavor type of tea, this Amber oolong is a great introduction to someone that loves the charcoal roasted flavor. You can smell the deep wood,  charcoal aroma right after brewing. A hint of spice like cloves, nutmeg and black pepper combine with the sweet roasted charcoal makes this tea is a perfect tea to drink with grilled meats.   

With a proper brewing, this oolong can be brewed for at least 10 times. Use a lower temperature (around 195F) to bring out more of the fruitiness of this tea or brew with higher temperature if you like more of a complex and spicier version of this oolong.

So incredibly disappointing

I'm new to tea, been ordering samples left and right to try to figure out what I like. One of my favorites so far has been a charcoal-roasted iron goddess, could almost say it blew my mind, and during the first steep I got some hints that this one was going to be similar. Second steep, the aroma was incredible, and I still felt as though it might really open up on the third steep. Kept going, and although the aroma was consistently incredible, the flavor I was hoping for never materialized -- the mere suggestion of warm spices, a bit of roasted flavor, maybe a little bit of fruit early on, but nowhere near what you'd expect given the strong aroma. I tried both ends of the temperature spectrum, tried short and long steeping times, nothing worked. Out of all the samples I've tried, this is the only one I want to describe as "watery". I don't even know if that will make sense, but there it is.
