This tea is full of subtle flavors. I could taste a faint background taste that reminded me of cinnamon flavored cactus candy. Not exactly like it, but similar in an undefinable way. This tea changes flavors as you hold it in your mouth. The flavor is primarily the flavor of a good jade oolong, sweet without being really sweet, floral without tasting as though is were made of flowers. Incredibly delicious in a delicate way that has to be drunk slowly to be appreciated.
The color is pale gold and shimmery.
