MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
Slightly vegetal teas with a fruity scent yet a woodsy taste. This is a beautiful tea that is well-rounded, loose leaf with a nicely wrapped tea. It’s a bitter tea and shows no aftertaste.
What I liked
I love a good oolong that reminds you of the ground that it is planted in and takes you to the place it was planted. It’s a good tea that can take you there. The bitterness is part of the tea process and the way your brew it can control that taste, adding sweetener as well helps.
What I did not like
I have a hard time saying anything bad about a loose leaf tea that was picked and processed just for me and sitting in my presence is the work of many people working long days and hard hours just to bring me a tea that makes me smile. No complaints.
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instruction chart below to help you brew your teas.
AVERAGE BREWING INSTRUCTIONS:
These are common instructions for brewing teas, however if the company suggests other brewing I will include it in the review section.

** As always stated by My Tea Vault, we think you should enjoy tea the way you like it, I like mine very strong with no sweetener, these are just guidelines and I suggest you use the guideline then adjust for your own tastes.
