This tea was floral and malty with notes of apricots and a subtle sweetness. There was a bit of dryness at the end of each sip but it wasn’t overly astringent. Overall it was a very enjoyable cup and I’m looking forward to trying it iced as well. While this was not the best oolong I’ve ever had, this tea is really inexpensive so it would make a great daily drinker. You would be hard pressed to beat $9.99 for just over 2oz of decent loose leaf tea. I really appreciated that this tea is organic and fair trade certified. I think it behooves every tea drinker to practice a little bit of social responsibility when we can.
