This smells a little different than the last time I steeped…after steeping (today) it reminds me of orange or grapefruit ‘skins’ prior or just after peeling…still nice…maybe even a hint of blossom, too.
This was the last of my stash – only bought a sample tin when I ordered – and the last tea of my day. This has a lovely scent and relaxing and light taste. My dogs are even intrigued by the scent but we NOT allowed a taste…silly dogs…TEA is for MOMMY!
As you open the tin before steeping it smells like Almond Essential Oil or something. As it’s steeping it’s all about the earthy scent. Afterwards it’s earthy meets Almond. It’s a good Oolong with a little Almond taste. Which is ok with me.
