I’ve had this tea for quite awhile but haven’t made a note until now because I have a hard time deciding on any sort of flavor profile for this one. There have been a lot of notes on it already, and I find that my tastings of it are different from what others have experienced. I taste roasty oolong with some woodsy and floral notes. The first steep has some sweetness, but I’m not getting any sort of heady vanilla or heavy banana or honey notes. This particular combination of floral and woodsy actually clash for me a little. That said, I do like this tea!

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
