This first flush is amber in coloring; very light for a black tea. The scent is very nice kind of make me think of jasmine tea and not really a black tea.

I had this in the morning to start my day and now very late in the day and no jitters as I tend to get with caffeinated teas. I am assuming there is more caffeine in this sampler as opposed to a green tea.

It is not a smoky tea at all, or full bodied as in roasted. So it is a black tea tasting like mildly green tea, very soft to the palette and sweet to the senses.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
