Tea Review: Da Hong Pao

Da Hong Pao
Gift/Mystery Tea
Type:  Oolong
Origin:  China
Product Description:  Not Available.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of roasted cocoa with floral notes.

The infusion is orange-amber with an aroma of roasted vegetables and unsweetened cocoa.  The taste is sweet, similar to roasted vegetables, and has a sweet finish.

This was a gift tea and did not include a description or origin information.  The sweetness was unexpected and pleasant.  It carried well throughout three steepings and I believe it would have done even better with increased steeping times after the first infusion.
