This delightful tea is lightly oxidized to create a beautiful, floral aroma and taste with a creamy mouthfeel. There is a touch of butterscotch on the lingering finish.

    Just great. It’s complex and super smooth at the same time. I get some floral notes like Lilac, some sweet fruit notes like papaya, and a bunch of rounder notes along the lines of butterscotch. Highly recommended.

  2. Val

    I like this as an budget friendly daily cuppa. Not as complex as many oolongs but a nice easy drinking tea with some floral notes. Doesn’t stand up to multiple steeps.
