Loved this one. I ordered because I see ‘sweet’ and it basically calls for me in my dreams. It is a sweet Oolong and less floral than TGY but not lacking of it. As far as the ‘thicker’ feeling in the description, it wasn’t as obvious to me at first. It felt like one of those characteristics that you can notice after comparing to others rather than an apparent characteristic.

I like the sweetness of the liquid and the green of the leaves as they steep. Vivid green with barely darker greens. They have a bit of nutty smell and the after taste is similar to that of eating mango. If you like the sweeter TGY but sometimes can’t handle the floral this is the tea for you.

Discovered tea a few years ago and I’ve been exploring ever since. I’m looking forward to keep learning and enjoy tea as I do. Keep learning, those who “know” stop learning and become irrelevant to the world.

I’m adding the scale because I noted that we all use the same system but it doesn’t mean the same to all.(I rate the tea not by how much I ‘like it’ only; there are flavors/scents I don’t like but they are quality and are how they are supposed to be and I rate them as such).

90 – 100: AMAZING. This the tea I feel you should drop whatever you are doing and just enjoy.

80-89: Great tea that I would recommend because they are above ‘average’ tea, they usually posses that ‘something’ extra that separates them from the rest.

70-79: An OK tea, still good quality, taste and smell. For me usually the tea that I have at work for everyday use but I can still appreciate and get me going through my day.

60-69: Average nothing special and quality is not high. The tea you make and don’t worry about the EXACT time of steep because you just want tea.

30-59: The tea you should probably avoid, the tea that you can mostly use for iced tea and ‘hide’ what you don’t like.

1-29: Caveat emptor! I feel sorry for my enemies when they drink this tea. :P
