Smells roasty, nutty and a little like fresh linens in the bag. The description the company had about apricot and peach notes is pretty accurate; I picked that up both on scent and taste. Speaking of taste, I’m also picking up the traditional oolong taste, which makes me think of minerals and roasted nuts. On re-steeps it stays good, and the roasted nut-like flavors I picked up earlier come to the forefront. This is something I’d order more of.

Bio

I’m basically a bum with gourmet taste.
I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
