I’ve been looking forward to trying this tea for quite some time.

It’s a little underwhelming to be honest. The leaves smell sugary; like catching a whiff of butterscotch candy. The flavors are light but prevalent. The oolong base is just ok. It could have used a little more oomph. I wish they would have used a slightly darker oolong. Sugar and caramel flavors on top of a light to medium roasted oolong would have been divine. I bet it would taste like a toasty crème brulee. Mmm.

This is a decent tea, but it didn’t knock my socks off. Maybe I played it up too much in my head. Big thanks to Ricky for letting me sample it! My wallet just gave a sigh of relief.

I have not tried this yet, but based on what others have said about some of the sizes of the samples, could it have been that your leaf/water ratio was just too light? Just a thought:)

I doubt it’s her leaf/water ratio, it is indeed a bit light. I completely agree, a stronger base would probably make this tons better.
