Hard to say, because black Darj tends to brew light. I'd say it's smack in the middle - certainly not light to the level of a TKY or a Pouchong. Very light and floral in flavor.

Ooooh, this is good. Got a sample in my TeaChef gift this week (which was an extremly nice gift I might add..Thank You very much) I am not fond of black Teas, but I want to be. Love Oolongs, this Tea is very 50/50..half black half Oolong. I really really like it, and would recommend everyone give it a try. Very mellow with a touch of sweetness. I am ordering more very soon.

lovely fragrance

I've just tried the Oooh, and it's got a truely lovely perfume. I love Darjeelings and enjoy oolongs, so this one is great. However, this is a complicated one and I'm struggling to find the perfect porportion of tea, temp, and water. I've made a wonderful cup, and several terrrible cups with this tea. Most oolongs can take a second or more steeping, but I've not been so impressed with this one after the first steeping. I'd love to hear how others prepare this tea. I steep about 1 teaspoon for 6 oz. of water and use water just slightly under the boil. A short steeping time seems best for the fragrance, but too weak for the actual tea. Any suggestions for the perfect cup?
