I like this tea. I prepared it gongfu style, in a gaiwan. I can taste the sweet raisin notes, etc. It does smell and look a bit like leaves off the forest floor, though. Albeit, that’s not a bad thing. The flavor is medium. Not really light or brisk. Just in between. Exactly as a oolong should be. Tastes almost like Lipton, but lighter and more creamy. Almost no bitterness, or astringency. I would recommend it, and keep it stocked.
