From Teavana

The ancient art of hand-tying teas is one that has been around for over a millennia in China. Today’s artisans use long, tippy black leaves from the Yunnan province of China and gently tie them into a beautiful rosette. This rich, dark, chocolaty black tea is as pleasing to the eye as to the palate. Perfect for travelers, because a strainer is not necessary. The rich flavor can be resteeped multiple times by simply adding more hot water. Packaged in an attractive tin containing 4oz of tea.

These are as pleasant visually as much as they are lovely flavor wise. They remind me of little spiky sea urchin when they float around in the pot. Very pretty and fun to brew. The color of the liquor is light amber, the flavor is floral, lightly fruity, hints of peach, earthy and strongly reminds me of “Shipovnik” which is a dried Rosa Cannina berry ( gives away with its light sour notes and the aroma). Its quite pleasant tea, I’m enjoying the second brewing more then the first. Its lighter and a bit more floral, fruity then earthy, I could totally see Puerh and Asam being part on the blend. Very flavorful and great with some sugar or agave.

Drinking this tea for the first time this morning. It’s good, but not sure if it is worth the price. Will finish what I bought, not sure I would buy it again.
