In the package it smells like fruit preserves (good ones, I keep sticking my nose in the bag, haha).
Taste: I get the normal Yunnan tea flavors out of this, yet this one seems to be slightly more floral/fruity/sweet tasting than the average Yunnan black, for me at least. That sweetness lingers in the aftertaste, which is probably my favorite thing about this tea. I added sugar anyhow and that really brings out the fruit preserve-like notes. This particular order had a good amount of golden leaves in it. I iced the last of it and it was great that way.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a young, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
