When brewed, this has a spicy, earthy smell. Smooth with a mildly smoky under-taste. Mildly vegetal green tea taste around the edges. I am not a huge fan of oolong, having grabbed this sample mostly for my mother, but I love watching oolong leaves unfurl! Not something I’d buy again, but only because oolong is not my go-to tea. I’d not hesitate to recommend the tea or the merchant to anyone looking for a good oolong with a smooth, quick and pleasant transaction.
