A great smooth flavor; doesn’t get too bitter.
This was perhaps the finest oolong I've ever had. The flavors were fresh and vibrant, and the aroma astounding, from opening the package to the steeping itself. Notes of lilac and spring air on the nose, to the semi-sweet, soft tanin taste. Just wonderful.
This tastes better than the same tea sold from different places for a much higher price. Thank you for these prices, I hate having to pay so much for my favorite tea.
Don't get me wrong, your other teas have been quite good. But this one had something much more....genuine about it. Like, if someone ever asked me what do I expect tea to taste like, this is the flavor I would pick. Also thank you for letting me know about brewing it multiple times, it really is even better the second time around. I hope you guys keep growing so you can add more teas like this to the store. It was my first non-flavored tea (kind of ironic that I found the "non-flavored" to have the best flavor), and I feel like I am hooked on this and want to explore even more.
