I have this one a few times now, from the generous sample included in my order from about a month ago. The smell was very intense, and incredibly orangey – but a good orange, not that sickly sweet orange that some teas can carry.

I steeped this a little longer than my usual oolong, and I really wasn’t getting oolong at all, just ginger and orange as the water slowly garnered a luscious amber tone. It was a very enjoyable cup, stimulating and tastey. The orange and ginger were well balanced, but the oolong was overpowered. I didn’t mind, however, as I really enjoyed this and appreciated the clear tisane-like notes.
