spicy, dark, and roasted. A great tea for a stressful saturday
light and floral, If you like green teas but are still new to oolongs, I would recommend this tea.

How have I never logged this tea when i’ve had it for about 2 months now??? Anyway, I love this tea. It’s a darker oolong, but has some notes of rock fruits like peach and plum, but has a sweetness on the end of the flavor. This tea also dries my mouth out a little bit, it’s strange really. Most of my mouth feels moisturized (?) by the tea except for the center of my tongue, where it feels dry. Very interesting experience.
This is a wonderful black tea for breakfast, as the name suggests. Usually, I only drink black tea at night or if I really need a good kick in the morning. I sipped on this tea on a Saturday morning with a hot breakfast, which is paired nicely with. The smell of the tea was intoxicating. It smelled a bit like cocao and scones, so it was sweet and robust all in one. The flavor was so much lighter than the smell of the liquor.The taste is light and gentle. I experienced little to no bitterness or tannins in my cuppa, which is good for someone who may forget about their tea by accident(hey, it happens to us all!). The taste is so smooth, that it naturally tastes as if there was creamer or milk already put into the tea.

bought this with the steepster deal a few days ago. I’ve only had a sample of this back when Tony opened Chicago Tea Garden, but it left quite the impression on me, as i’m always thinking back to this tea when trying out other Tie Guan Yins. The taste is very smooth,floral, fruity and just plain fantastic.
fruity flavor, which reminds me of apples. There is a slight sweet finish,which ends rather quickly and makes me want another sip. Wonderful tea. I am very pleased with the group of oolong samples I bought from Tea from Taiwan!!
