An excellent, rich Oolong. Tasty without being overpowering.

This is the tea that got me hooked on Oolongs. Very subtle flavors with a light sweet finish. Great for multiply steeps.

This goddess is very nice to me. The aroma is light, while the flavor in the tea richer and fuller than that whiff off the leaves. At first sip, this tea is light, but the flavor is strongest in the back of the mouth as it has a distinct bitter nutty-like taste. The savor of this tea lingers in the mouth, which perfectly compliments its smooth finish.

N.B.: very light yellow liqueur.
Preparation: 1.5 tsp. at 4 min. at 205 F
