Oolongs have become my favorite teas and this is one that I enjoy with some regularity. I put it in a class of teas that (for lack of better terminology) I label as "smokey" flavored. There are three Oolongs that I classify this way, Big Red Robe, Hairy Crab, and Wuyi Rock. This one, Big Red Robe, seems to me to fall in the middle range of the "smokiness." While this is not a flavor I go to every day, it is a variety that I consistently cycle into my morning teas. An excellent tea to include in the mix of teas one enjoys.
