Taster’s Review:

This Oolong brews to a beautiful, bright amber color that is pleasantly fragrant.  Smelling a little of flower and of fruit, with just a hint of smoke in the distance, this tea is begging me to take a sip!

The sip begins with a bright introduction of peach-like flavor with very subtle floral notes weaving throughout.  About mid-sip, the palate is enveloped with a smooth sweetness that is honey-like in flavor.  It is about this time that I notice that the light yet silky mouthfeel.

I don’t notice a tremendous amount of astringency with this cup, however, I do notice enough to mention it.  It seems to softly polish the palate.  The aftertaste is sweet with a savory whisper of tangy/sour taste.

A delightfully complex Oolong!  I love this!
