This wonderful tea is produced from plants grown from three famous tea plants. The large leaves are about 40% oxidized and have a warm, toasty flavor, and the leaves can be brewed several times. Dry Leaves: These leaves are long and twisted, the color is dark brown. Liquor: Dark, clear caramel. Aroma: The initial aroma is that of charcoal, but underneath is the sweetness of stone fruits like grilled peaches. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: A medium to heavy bodied oolong. This tea may be brewed multiple times. Flavors: Like peach compote with a bit of dark molasses, and then some astringency from the charcoal firing. Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes Brewing Temperature: 205° F
