This tea is a dark oolong with an amber color and a roasted floral aroma. It tastes of orange zest and roses with a light roasted quality and Wuyi minerality to the aftertaste. I am not the biggest fan of fruitiness in my tea so this is not in my wheelhouse, but it is a decent cup of tea.

Flavors: Orange Zest, Rose

The dry smell of this tea took me back to the barn at my house growing up. It smells exactly like horse feed pellets, it is amazing how a scent can take you back to a time in your life instantly like that. The steeped tea has a malty hay aroma. It has a sweet malty flavor with notes of hay, malt, molasses, and a hint of chocolate. I really enjoyed this tea, flavor and nostalgia in one cup.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hay, Malt, Molasses
