Small round balls of tea, easy to scoop and measure.
Pleasant, Malty smell before brewing.
But the malty taste doesn’t come thru in the brewed tea as well as some other Golden Snail I’ve had. A tad tannic for the plain teas I make (no milk or sugar); this may be better steeped a bit longer and then able to push thru the sugar and/or cream OK.

Light, Fruity, Definitely Tropical.
A nice tea when you want something that is only minimally tea-tasting. Sometimes you just ant something different.

Very Large, full-leaf tea. You’ll need to break it up to fit it in a tea ball.
Slightly nutty, earthy flavor. Rather flavorful, robust. But not sharp, not too tannic.

Large, full golden brown leaves. Nice aroma.
Tastes similar to Keemun Snail, which I like a lot. Earthy, bread-ish, not sharp. dark golden brew after 60 seconds (I don’t steep too long, I never add anything to my tea).

I thought this was a Lapsang “blend”, but after having a few cups, it’s really “just” lapsang souchong. It’s a good one, I still think Upton’s Lapsang is slightly better.

fairly light, very flavorful; reminds me of Harney & Sons “Paris” in its floral notes.
Very light colored steep, no real bitterness. Nice variety.

Smooth, very much the same sense of oolong as from the twinings I just drank, but smoother and more flavorful. A nice change of pace, a very nice oolong.

Nice smooth green tea. I’m not the biggest Green tea fan, but this is a nice tea. Not sharp or bitter at all.
