Ok, I’ve been trying to think of how to describe this tea, and this is the best I’ve got: Lipton, if it tasted better, and was slightly sweet. The leaves themselves are dark green with small pieces of what I’m assuming are the osmanthus flowers. It’s kind of fascinating because the flavor is SO familiar and yet different at the same time. If you’re a fan of oolongs, samples of this are inexpensive from Upton. It’s worth a try just to see the amazing variations within Chinese oolongs.
