I never thought I’d give a tea such a high rating but this simply is the best tea I’ve ever had. It brewed a light brown, dark orange color; a very appealing color, something I haven’t seen in a tea before. The first taste was so bright yet mellow. There are a hundred different undertones to this tea. The only reason I didn’t give it a 100 rating is because when I left the tea in my mouth for a little while I began to get some slight astringent tastes, which I don’t like in teas.
