This was a bit of an impulse purchase, based mostly on the lovely name. (Who wouldn’t want to drink a cup of “Golden Dawn”?) I’ve loved some of TeaSource’s other oolongs (their milk oolong and Honey Formosa come to mind) but this one just isn’t my favorite flavor profile. It’s VERY floral (feels like a mouthful of buttery flower petals while you’re drinking it) and also has a slightly coppery aftertaste that I find rather off-putting. That being said, it’s obviously a high quality tea; the leave are large, bright green, and very fragrant. Hoping I can pass this one on to someone else who will appreciate it more than I do!
