This tea has a smooth body and a unique flavor in my opinion. The leaves of this tea is dark so you can see it was well roasted. I get 4-5 good steepings with different experiences with each cup like it should be. What do I get out of this tea in a nut shell? Well, I get a light sweetness almost floral and a nice dose of a nutty or woody flavor. Picture drinking some hot liquid off of a older darker and rich tree bark that has a flower on the bark too and you are surrounded by a lush full green forest that just brings peace to your surrounding that is how this tea comes off. I would recommend this more for a dark oolong lover or someone that wants to try different teas. I would not recommend paying Teavana’s premium price of $25/ 2 oz but well worth it on sale like it was not to long ago.

Bio

IF ANY TEA COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO SEND ME SAMPLES OF THEIR TEA I WOULD BE GLAD TO DO A FULL REVIEW ON STEEPSTER FOR YOU AND ON YOUR COMPANY WEBSITE JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE.

I am a simple guy that enjoys making new tea friends and enjoying different teas and tea culture.
My favorite type of teas are green, oolong, pu-erh.
I do have a special love for black (red) tea and chai since they were the teas that started me on my tea adventure. I wish the whole community well.

My Tea Scores
100 points: Perfect experience. Beyond what you would expect from the aroma, the leaf, the liquor, the taste.
96-99 points: Excellent. A tea that will show true greatness in it’s character with at least 2 infusions.
93-95 points: Superior.Teas that achieve high quality in one dimension, and shows it’s high quality character and their variety in other dimensions.
90-92 points: High quality. Quality leaves, liquor hold to it’s true profile, the teas character can hold it’s flavor for 2 infusions.
85-89 points: Good. Above average tea that is lacking something to make them high quality.
80-84 points: Average. Nothing special
79 and lower points: Low quality. Not worth buying and a tea you would never remember drinking unless it tasted that bad.
