This tea is a really enjoyable cup, but I can’t rave about these snails as much as others do. The bright taste of this tea isn’t well rounded to me. I feel like I am missing something. Its like a golden monkey but with out the dark notes and I have to say the dark notes is what I really like. I wouldn’t pass up a cup of this, but I probably won’t seek it out either.

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
