There is a lot going on with this tea. Flowers, fragrance, a little space.

A totally unique Oolong. There are other New Zealand Oolongs that are more floral and are higher up on teas I traditionally like. The toasty peanut notes in this one are great!

This is a great blend of tea! Jasmine, citrus, bergamont all in great cup of tea!

Quite a delicious tea. Malty, chocolatey …so much promise. When it is all grown up and in Northwinds or in Golden Orchid it has such flair.

In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there’s nothing, really nothing to turn off” Visions of Johanna, Bob Dylan

I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm for this tea. For me the joy of this tea is in its understatement. It is not a bombardment on the taste buds, but so well balanced; a tea that has been built, not blended. Each of the pieces critical, there, but not there. A handful of rain, if you will, tempting you to defy it.

Tasting it with the sample of the Yunnan Dian Hong was a lot of fun! Thank you!

Could it be over the top? Definitely. However, like many of the Freres tea, it comes together in harmony. It can be quite a luxury though.
