Tea Review: Tihar Smoked Oolong Tea (Nepali Tea Traders)

Tihar Smoked Oolong Tea
Nepali Tea Traders
Type: Oolong
Origin: Nepal
Product Description: This is a lightly smoked, woody oolong.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of wood smoke and salt.

The copper red infusion has an aroma of wood smoke and salt with a hint of sweetness.  The taste is smoky and smooth with a long, mellow, smoky finish.

The dry aroma and aftertaste reminded me distinctly of some of my favorite smoked foods.  While the full flavor is in the first infusion, a second and third infusion are also enjoyable if considerably lighter in flavor.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
