Very sweet. The batch I have is more on the green side. So it has the bready/pastry flavor of DD along with some green and some floral tgy like flavor. I like it <3 . Its a different flavor than the medium DD I got from Taiwan tea crafts, but I can say that I like the both of them.

Light Oolong that is pale green in color and has a steamed spinach and a faint floral aroma. This tea has a little bit over everything in its flavor, I get some floral, some fruitiness, a little steamed spinach flavor, and a tinge of butteriness. None of the flavors dominate the tea’s taste, but I like the way they work together.

Oh là là! This is a very nice oolong tea. Upon opening the pouch, the nose is presented with the scent of freshly mown grass, with a hint of spice. The tea liquors to a cloudless and radiant amber colour that is appealing to behold. The flavour is light, of delicate fruit and flowers. There is no hint of grassiness, which often mars lesser green oolongs, nor of astringency. Because this tea is so light, it benefits from gongfu steeping that brings out a sweet peachy flavour. This tea is refreshing and delightful: it could easily become a favourite.
