This tea should get a 100 just for the name alone. I wish I were able to name some teas.
The Mermaid’s Kiss is a delightful magnolia oolong from start to finish. (And what a lovely finish it is!)
The aroma of the dry leaves is gentle, like jasmine. They’re a pretty deep emerald green in the tin.
After steeping, they release the most glorious magnolia fragrance from the golden liquor. It’s so beautiful in so many ways. The taste is wonderful. On the forefront is the magnolia, which is quite strong for those who enjoy teas scented with flowers. However, the oolong itself is very present, with a hint of a roasted flavor that couples nicely with the oolong. This tea, like so many wonderful oolongs, sweetens as it cools, which I find so pleasant as I rarely drink an entire cup of tea hot.
