Dry: Very dark green tightly rolled leaves, somewhat glossy. Lovely light slightly floral and sweet green fragrance. Fresh is the word I would use to describe this tea right out of the bag.

Steeped: I steeped 7g in my large infuser. Like other oolongs, this one needs a lot of room to expand and the large whole leaves unfurl nicely. Lovely clear yellow (tinted towards olive) liquor. Smells sweet and light with a floral-fruity oolong note.

Taste: Smooth and sweet from the first sip with a silky mouth feel. A little bit drying on the tongue, but not in an unpleasant, sour, or bitter way. Fresh and fragrant oolong with a slight fruity note. Not tasting anything buttery, vegetal, or roasted in this tea- just a light, pleasant, and enjoyable oolong. Holds up to several re-steepings, though I stopped after three to move onto something else. I have really been enjoying my Teavivre order- everything has been wonderful so far.
