The dry leaf doesn’t smell of much, but when the hot water hits, it releases the citrusy aromas promised. The liquor is sweet, fruity, and smooth with a lovely, lightly floral aftertaste. There’s absolutely nothing bad I can say about this tea (except for a somewhat unpleasant tingle at the bottom of the throat, but it’s barely worth mentioning). Granted this is the first example of an Oriental Beauty I’ve tried, but I’m very impressed.
ETA: Second steep had an interesting lemony tartness, which was overtaken by woodiness in subsequent steepings.
Flavors: Apricot, Fruit Tree Flowers, Lemon Zest
