Got this new tea recently and find it has a rich and rather unique flavor. The unsteeped leaves are twisted and curled and have a dark greenish black appearance. The aroma is distinct and pleasant. The color of the brew is a light golden yellow. The leaves unfurl and reveal their long full leafs. They take on the appearance of an oolong tea. The taste is smooth with notes of fruit. It’s a delicious tea.

Bio

I love loose leaf tea! While I gravitate towards black teas, I’m getting more into oolongs, greens and whites. I’m always looking for great fresh new teas to try. This tends to lead to the problem of ordering more even though I already have way too much.

My collection of tea has kind of gotten out of hand. After taking over several kitchen cupboards, it has spilled into the back hallway now with containers of tea stacked up there. I think I need more hours in the day to drink it all.

I’m also a vegetarian who loves dark chocolate, photography, travel, computers, web programming, technology and cats.
