Wonderful tea. Big roasted nut flavors, with some fruit and floral notes that lighten everything up and make it quite an interesting session. An interesting note that popped up was a fruity, floral, waxy scent that reminded me of mulberry-scented French soap I got in France a while back. That’s a new one!

Absolutely delicious and worth its price. The only drawback is that there are other (non-Taiwanese) black/red teas that cost half the price and can compete with this tea’s complexity and flavor. That said, it is still very reasonably and affordably priced, and well worth picking some up.
Leaf – malty, sweet potato, honey floral, waxy sweet fruity floral (mulberry). In preheated vessel – big shot of clover honey, blackberry syrup, berry compote

Smell – roasted pecans and almonds, sweet potato casserole (sweet potato, bruleed marshmallow, baking spices), waxy fruity floral again – mulberry

Taste – primary notes of roasted nuts (pecans and almonds), warm roastiness, cooked blackberries, and sweet potato casserole. Secondary flavors of malt, dry milk chocolate in the finish, and spearmint, mulberry, and blackberry notes in aftertaste.

92-95 – So good that I will purchase this tea again, guaranteed. Excellent flavor and value.

88-91 – A tea that I would consider purchasing again at some point. Great flavor and value.

85-87 – Tea that was worth the purchase and that I enjoyed drinking, although I probably won’t be purchasing it again any time soon. Flavor may have slight drawbacks, or the price might be a little expensive.

80-84 – A tea that has some good points, but falls a bit short on its price:quality ratio. Flavor is a bit mediocre.

No rating – I did not like this tea and would not drink it, given other options.
