I will try to find out the source of this tea, but even looking at the photos and descriptions I can’t say for certain which company this tea came from originally.

The first impression – Oh, the aroma! This smelled like gardenias to me, so I am guessing it is one of the ones that have jasmine flowers added. I couldn’t stop sniffing that lovely aroma from the cup! The taste was sweet and good, the tea was slightly astringent, but the gardenia scent combined with the sweet floral flavor made it well worth the drinking! This was very enjoyable. I need to try it again, because so many of these contain prange peel or orange oil, and I did not pick up orange flavor in this – just floral, but a good kind, not cloying, sickening, or soap-y.

Now, because I love Harney and Sons so much, I want to try their Osmanthus Oolong and see if it is similar!

This sounds very good, your description has me wanting to try it.
I agree with you about H&S, I have not been dissatisfied with any tea of theirs I have tried. Just wish they had a store down south…

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
