"Mixiang Red Oolong" means "Honey-Fragrance Red Oolong" in Chinese.  Red tea in China means black tea in the West.  So with this tea we are looking at a darker-than-normal oolong.  It's a cousin of one of our favorites we've carried for a long time called "High Mountain Honey Oolong" and shares the all-important bites of the leaf-hoppers.  However this one is allowed to oxidize more and it's roasted into darker territory.  Not to mention it's grown on Lishan Mountain at about 1800M, which is quite high and easily one of the best areas to grow tea in Taiwan. The liquor is darker, it's got nice body, it's flavorful and fragrant.  I like it a lot!  Let me know what you think.
