“Honey Fragrance Oolong” is right — this tea doesn’t attempt to do a lot, but the one thing it does do it does really well. It has a light, sweet flavor with a strong honey flavor to it. The after taste is every-so-slightly grassy.

I ended up brewing this by warming the teapot, warming the tea cup, then awakening the leaves by giving them a brief flush of hot water, then by brewing them for about a minute. The resulting brew is fairly light colored (I used a little less than a teaspoon of leaves) and yellow artificial light of my office it was hard to tell if I’d brewed it long enough. I made a guess on the shorter brew time, taking a moment to smell the brew first just to make sure there was fragrance; I think the shorter brew time paid off. There isn’t a hint of bitterness in this brew.
