WOW!! Again, I haven’t been able to do life things like grocery shop, so I chose this sample. A green packet! I love this tea bag sampler. I was incredibly hungry today before leaving for work, but I didn’t have time to eat anything. I brewed this up while I was getting ready. The leaves inside the large teabag are like oolong. Curled up. The result was a very dark, almost black tea colored, liquor. It was nutty and roasty smelling.

I took a sip and my mind went nuts. This tea is ABSOLUTELY AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!!#!# WOO!! Maybe it was because I was hungry, but the flavors in this tea are amazing. These types of oolongs that I’ve tried are usually light in flavor. This one pops out without being too demanding. There was no astringency or hint of bitterness at all. I was surprised since the liquor was so dark. The roasted and toasty flavors combined with the tiny hint of florals and lingering sweetness is really good. I will most definitely be purchasing this later.
