This tea, in my opinion, is one of the little treasures in life. There’s something about it. It both tastes and smells great and also makes me feel great as well. As for the taste, it has sort of a full body which I think is contributed by the down that covers the tea. It coats the back of your throat as it goes down and leaves a nice and light aftertaste. This tea is fresh and I can smell notes of oranges. It is slight, but is definitely there. Perhaps those who say they can’t notice this are those who have an older crop or one that is not as fresh or maybe even aren’t using the right water. Also this tea puts me into a state of general well being. I feel like there are no worries in the world and feel well nourished and satisfied after I finish a cup of this. It also lifts my mood. It’s the small things in life, like this tea, that mean so much to me. Also, I can always count on Harney and Sons to bring tea of top shelf quality. Some other vendors may have counterfeit Bi Lo Chun or even one of a lower grade. Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
