The dry leaves are visually pleasing: they are large and gnarly. The smell is sweet -reminiscent of the field of wild flowers in the spring – and spicy.

The liquor is very fragrant: fall leaves, burned leaves, spices, sandal wood, honey. The smell is quite distinct and uplifting.

The taste is mild but complex. There is some woodiness and sourness, plus malt, floral and honey notes and lots of other, harder to identify things. It also has a lingering and pleasant aftertaste.

It was a sampler and I will certainly order it again and in larger quantity. A keeper.

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
