"Characteristic appearance: baroque leaf patterns, with a full, pungent aroma unstopped. The flavor is medium-modied, with a touch of tannin. Pleasing - easy to like by itself, but better with a light snack." MR

"An intense honey aroma will greet you as you pour your first cup. I say first because you will want to enjoy many cups of this delightful tea! The flavor is silky smooth with notes of honey and flowers and a hint of chestnut in the finish. A unique and wonderful Oolong selection!"
