6 Tasting Notes
This is the best tea I have ever had. This tea has an amazing aroma, dry right out of the container. It has a beautiful hue. Once you have made a cup, the aroma of the steeped leaves is still of full smoky potency. This tea has an amazing, full bodied flavor. A sweet finish, with a complex flavor. I will post a followup or two because I want to see what future cups are like. This first cup is strong, not delicate at all but complex. No wonder this stuff is so expensive.
Overall, this is an amazing tea. It is delicate, mild, and I highly recommend it. This is a white, or, technically, yellow tea. The flavor of this tea is not assertive, but I find myself wanting more every time I have some. You can steep these teas over and over, like pretty much every tea I have gotten from Golden Moon.
This tea, sadly no longer offered by Teavana, is one of my favorites. Like many teas by them, the heavy fruit use means the first two cups are the best. That being said, it is an exciting, bold tea whose aroma makes my mouth water every time. I still have some of this tea, going to make it last as long as I can.
