A one ounce sample of this was included when I recently bought a teapot. I really wasn’t expecting much. I am pleasantly surprised. The leaf is much nicer looking than standard grocery store loose leaf yet the price is about the same. The brew color is a deep bright copper and the cup scent is almost like tieguanyin with lemon notes. Very interesting. The sip is also a pleasant surprise. The ginger and Ceylon hit first with bite. It makes my cheeks tingle. It is a little astringent but it is a Ceylon and I did steep it at least three minutes. A shorter steep might civilize it (I like it this way). The lemon is present but hides under the ginger until the aftertaste. It is never in your face. The Ceylon comes through throughout. I like that in a flavored tea – because its TEA after all. The leaf is nice looking. The cup is tasty and has depth. I am happily surprised.
