I rinse the leaves to open them up, and then steep it for a short time, under 30 seconds. As I wait, I notice the floral notes, but it also smells like honey to me.
The taste is pure and earthy, with hints of apples and florals… not as strong as jasmine or rose, but equally enchanting. There is a sweet after-taste, still of honey.
This is a beautiful, delicately perfume-y oolong which I would be happy to serve to friends. It’s not strong, weird, or frightening. It’s a great pick-me-up

It is dark and rich, but it isn’t bitter at all, which is a pleasant surprise! I don’t need milk or sugar. What surprises me is the smokiness. I didn’t detect that in the smell, but it definitely has a light smoky, nutty flavour which reminds me of the Lapsang Souchong from Tea Classico. But it’s not only smoky… there is the richness of dark berries… blackberries, currants, grapes. The after-taste is like a burnt caramel… a little sweet, a little smoky… rich.
