The dry leaves smelled so appeaing – like honey and flowers. The smell reminded me a little bit of a formosa oolong. The leaves are very long, twisted back on themselves, and look pretty oxidized for a first flush, with a color that has brown, gold and green mixed in.
I am having a little bit of a hard time describing the flavor, and the words that are coming to me are “high” and “clear” – which makes little sense. You can officially call me crazy now. The flavor is definitely light and subtle and might actually remind me of a formosa oolong in flavor as well due to the natural sweetness of the tea.
