Had this recently at a family member’s house. Tasted nutty and roasty. Was pretty good, nothing to write home about though.

This tea is delicious, especially with milk/sugar. It has a sort of almost-but-not-quite cocoa taste to it.

Once brewed, the color is a light orange with a hint of pink. The smell is very mellow and at the same time rich with notes of what seems like exotic fruit. Smells nice. :O

After a sip, I’m impressed. It’s definitely flavorful and tastes almost how it smells. It has a unique flavor. As it cools its flavor is more pronounced. Definitely try this out if you’re into oolongs. Easily a new favorite.

Roasty goodness. I don’t even consider this a green tea in my own mind, tastes almost like a black tea. The stuff chest hair is made of.

I often drink this at work because I don’t want to transport my loose leaf utilities everyday. This is one of the better bagged teas though. If you’re in a pinch, go for this or Stash’s black teas.

Have you tried fillable paper filters? Just put a bunch in a bag or empty tea tin/box to make them easy to carry with you. That way you can have any kind of loose leaf tea you want at work. I love them:)

Indeed. Though my main issue is with the water temperature. I use the utilitea which has a nice guage for proper black/green temps. At work we just have a hot water spout that spits out near boiling temperature. Not really ideal for green teas.
