The dry tea smells great. It has a sweet, lemony smell, but it’s not lemon-cleaner-like, if you know what I mean.

My first thought when I tasted it was that it was a variation of Exotica. I love Exotica, so that’s not a bad thing. I did detect a bit of a bitter end note while drinking it, though. I followed DT’s instructions and steeped it for 4 min at 92C. I think next time I’ll try it at a slightly lower temp, and maybe for only 3 min, and see if that takes away the bitterness.

I liked it, but unless changing the steeping method improves it, I’ll stick to Exotica.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
