The dry leaf scent is definitely FLORAL and I am not a floral person. As soon as the hot water hits the dry leaf, the aroma becomes more appealing to me – a little fruity and nutty along with the dominant floral. The sip is OK. I can drink this and it is rather pleasant – a little nut; a little caramel; a bit of floral. The tea is fairly well balanced now. I’ll pull this one out every now and then; probably serve to a guest or two; don’t think I’ll put it on the reorder list.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.

Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since. I enjoy most tea types but I cannot handle jasmine or other florals and I’m not particularly fond of bergamot. Moved quickly into unflavored blacks and puerhs and seldom drink anything else. Now most of my purchases are puerh cakes for aging.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions. My tea notes are now simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are useful to me and if they happen to be helpful to someone else that is good.
