meh…
Nose; cream custard, roasted yam, hazel nut, ginger snaps, light mandarin orange — no almond for me.
Palate; very light and not in a good way, slight sweet custard, roasted chestnut.

OK, so maybe I am just too much of a tea snob, just too critical, but here I am, so I guess I will keep going…
By and large I have not found the JK teas up to snuff, my experience has been better with Whispering Pines, Verdant, and especially Yunnan Sourcing.
Nose; lightly roasted nori, seashore.
Palate; not much there, slightly sweet, oatmeal, brown sugar.

Similar to a Feng Huan Dan Cong; a robust oolong that settles into your soul and makes you feel like you’re dancing in front of a fireplace. It does take a bit of coercing to get it just right, otherwise it’s a little watered-down-tasting. However, get it right and it’s a deep, awesome flavour that hits the back of your tongue with soft, roasted force. Mmm.
