The scent prior to steeping was pure peach. After steeping Peach and almost a hint of twig. The coloring is neat…a nice light brown. At first sip you get the peach taste but it’s not overpowering…towards the end you can get a bit of twig-taste, but just a hint. I would suggest this one to someone who is new to Oolong and enjoys the scent and undertone taste of peaches. A Delight!
