well this was my first oolong tea and well dry it smelled sweet but funky and I was seriously scared about trying it, but I steeped it and thankfully the taste wasnt as funky as the smell! my boyfriend tasted it and said he liked it the best! he said it put him in the mind of marshmallows! and then there it clicked thats what it tasted like!! like the tea alot! it wouldnt be my first to rush and stock up on but def a keeper! I dont think this would be very good cold!
