RED BUFFALO


Tea type: oolong tea Brand: Chariteas

How to prepare it: 3 to 5 minutes, 85-95 °C (185-200 °F)



Dry scent: In the first place huge woody notes are shown, but also an herbish one, which reminds me of some green teas from Japan. Then, roasted notes of walnuts and hazelnuts come out, but still perfectly mix up together. Unusual for an oolong.


Liquor's colour:

Bright yellow.


Liquor’s scent:

Closer to a normal oolong profile, with strong woody notes surrounded by hints of dried fruits. That subtle herbal note is still there.


Taste:

Extremely consistent to the dry one: sweet, but not sugary. Then salty notes come out, recalling me of dried fruits; nuts and hazelnuts, in particular. All these flavours are surrounded by a smooth, full-bodied woody scent. Still has the same herbish note, which add sourness and complexity to the brew.


Conclusion:

Definitely unexpected, this oolong made of different shades that remember me of many different teas. It’s a complex tea, full of surprises, sometimes enigmatic. Definitely a very good tea, one of a kind.

8.25/10
