Nice and crisp, oddly refreshing and breath freshening. The cinnamon burns a little bit at the back of my tongue which is really nice. Drinking it, the color was close to a dark brown and the taste profile was obviously between a white and black tea. Had the malty fruitiness of the Golden Needle but the dry florals of a white. The combo impressed me overall with the cinnamon-I can see the squash comparison that they made on the website. $30 per serving is a bit much though, and like I said before, or again and again-some of Shang’s Tea’s are just up there. Otherwise, I am so thankful to Nicole for at least allowing me to try it in a trade. It is definitely a great quality tea and I cannot wait to try the oolong offerings that Shang has.
If you, the reader, decide to buy this, know what you are getting because if this is what you seek, it will satisfy you. I will however say that you might be able to find some similar teas else-where, but just not the exact same as this unique one.
