The tea has a wonderful smell and I love opening the bag. The dry leaf is very wiry and is difficult to measure out with a teaspoon. I found it very delicious with its toffee notes and hint of cocoa. Think of something in between a heavily roasted oolong and a classic congou. This bag of tea will be gone before I am ready for it to be!

Library director living in Spencer, Iowa. Trying to spread the good news about tea. Focused on camelia sinensis, only marginally interested in tisanes.

My favorites (so far) are congou and pu-erh (both types). I like some greens, lots of oolongs, and whites and yellows, but I enjoy drinking black tea day in and out.

Besides, oolongs are best enjoyed prepared in a manner that demands a little more time and care. So, I like to save those times for when I can fully enjoy the experience.
