Recent Tasting Notes

I will try to find out the source of this tea, but even looking at the photos and descriptions I can’t say for certain which company this tea came from originally.

The first impression – Oh, the aroma! This smelled like gardenias to me, so I am guessing it is one of the ones that have jasmine flowers added. I couldn’t stop sniffing that lovely aroma from the cup! The taste was sweet and good, the tea was slightly astringent, but the gardenia scent combined with the sweet floral flavor made it well worth the drinking! This was very enjoyable. I need to try it again, because so many of these contain prange peel or orange oil, and I did not pick up orange flavor in this – just floral, but a good kind, not cloying, sickening, or soap-y.

Now, because I love Harney and Sons so much, I want to try their Osmanthus Oolong and see if it is similar!

This sounds very good, your description has me wanting to try it.
I agree with you about H&S, I have not been dissatisfied with any tea of theirs I have tried. Just wish they had a store down south…

Ooh, this does sound like my kind of tea! And I didn’t know Harney had n Osmanthus Oolong, it’s definitely on my list now!
