"every bit as good as top-notch Taiwanese jade oolongs. Well rolled leaves with a little bit of stem for added complexity and nuance. Gorgeous, floral and rewarding." Bret Wiley

"Has some of the flavors I would expect from a Taiwan Oolong. Sweet and floral with a little of the veggie thing going on but a little on the rough side for me."
"I steeped the large, spiral-shaped leaf pellets for 3 minutes in 190F water. I loved watching the leaves unfurl as it steeped. The pale jade tea liquor has a light floral fragrance with a very rich, buttery flavor. Notes of orchid gently dance across my tongue and linger into the finish. This tea is light yet richly flavored, all at the same time."
