Oh man! Ths one brewed up into a lovely golden color and I am really enjoying it! Although it is an oolong, it has a lot of black tea qualities to it. It starts out light in the front of the mouth with an almost citric quality. It darkens into a barely creamy, slightly roasty and malty flavor- reminds me slightly of chestnut stuffing. It has a light astringency which works in this tea to make it seem bright even though there are some darker tones to it. It’s very well-balanced between light and dark flavors.

Thanks Shelley_Lorraine dor the opportunity to try this tea.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
