Thank you to Amy Oh for a sample of this tea. I had been wanting to try this tea for the longest time. It just sounded too delicious to pass up! I ADORE oolongs. They have to be my favorite tea. I’m a bit disappointed with this one, though. The tea is too smelly for my tastes. It smells like that stinky grass that lingers on your fingers after you pull it out of the ground. I just can’t stand it. I suppose that it’s the orchid that I’m not liking. The slight sweetness is nice, but the orchid is just killing me. I thought that I would like orchid much more, but I think that this is one more thing I should add to my ‘dislikes’. I can’t get more than a few sips down.

I’m actually kind of glad someone else thought it was icky… :)

Amy, I completely know what you mean! I am so thankful that I got to try this tea, so thank you again. I just didn’t know that I would dislike orchid so much. The scent.. the taste… I can’t even think about it! ;)

I feel so bad! But maybe you can swap the rest to someone else!

If you have any left I would be interested in swapping! (My cupboard is not up to date but I can let you know what I’ve got if you’re interested – mostly unflavored green, black, oolong, and some puerh)

80-89 – Quite good! A very pleasing cup.
70-79 – Room for improvement, but not bad.
60-69 – Mediocre.
50-59 – Bad. Will not purchase.
49 & below – Depending on the more specific rating: Undrinkable. Yuck. Will not purchase.
