Dry Leaf – Milky, buttery sweetness with some sweet pea scent.
Wet Leaf – Buttery, Sweet and nutty. Slightly milky.

- 1st Steep – Sweet and slightly savory background with nutty taste. faint vegetal scent.

- 2nd Steep – Nutty sweetness resembles sweet corn and some raw honey. (smells like roasted sweet corn). Starts sweet and nutty with savory hints and buttery feel that then feels clean.

- 3rd Steep – Slightly smells like sweet corn when roasted. the leaves opened fully and the brew is sweet with floral tones and butter like feeling.

- 4th Steep – Sweetness fades away and more floral, is not at clean as the first steeps this steep has a floral aftertaste to it.

Good tea, not the greatest to me, but If you like smoother Oolongs this is one to try.

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
