This is a pleasant twist on oolong. It’s very fragrant with a general fruity/candylike aroma, and the color after steeping is a light, golden marigold. The flavor is light but full and has a few different layers to it. A little stronger at first, but has a nice, fruity finish to it. However, I can’t get past the fact that the taste resembles that of a blue raspberry or strawberry slushie. Am I crazy, or is anybody else getting something along the same lines? Either is quite probable. I think for this reason the flavor tastes somewhat artificial to me. Be this as it may, I still enjoy it when I’m in the mood for something sweet and juicy. In this regard, I believe this tea is fairly straightforward. It is mostly what it claims to be.

“The heaven of modern humanity is indeed shattered in the Cyclopean struggle for wealth and power. The world is groping in the shadow of egotism and vulgarity. Knowledge is bought through a bad conscience, benevolence practised for the sake of utility. The East and West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life…Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura, “The Book of Tea”

I am happiest at a tea room, or snuggled up at home with a freshly brewed cup.
