Light Oolong tea with a buttery, creamy, and vegetal flavor. The creamy sweetness of the tea comes through at the end and tends to linger as the early grassy flavor fades.

Sweet and vanilla in flavor. Not too strong or overpowering. Pretty good dessert or afternoon tea if you feel like vanilla flavor. Does not taste artificial at all.

Golden brown in color. Interesting blend of teas, at first I get a little earthy smokiness which goes away quickly, then a rich cocoa flavor, and finally a sweet apricot flavor at the end. I am a big fan of this tea and the more I drink it the more I enjoy it.

Dark Oolong with a light amber color. Smooth and sweet flavor of roasted root vegetables like a mix of a carrot or parsnip and a sweet potato. Not too complex, but quite tasty.

This tea has a jasmine aroma. It taste floral and buttery. The strong jasmine aroma does not come through in the flavor, it is much more muted. I get the jasmine taste with honeysuckle and a sweetness that reminds me a little of honeydew melon.

I love the look of this tea with the black and gold dried leaves. The aroma of this tea is smokey and earthy, which is misleading because it does not come through in the flavor. The tea has a complex taste of malty and cocoa flavors mixed with sweet potato. This is a very exceptional tea.

Very good basic Assam tea. Bold and strong with no bitterness. It is simple and taste great hot or iced. I would describe this as the basic black coffee of tea. It is a great everyday morning tea to get you going or an afternoon tea when you need a pick me up.

This tea smells and taste of jasmine. The jasmine flavor is not overpowering, but it is the only flavor I get. This tea is enjoyable but not exceptional.
