Semi-fermented tea Ti Kuan Yin tea and natural honey
Tea is from the country of China
From the opening of the package, I’m impressed with the reseal able package. The scent it first reminds me of is Hay, or Straw. The leaves are beautifully rolled and are hard to the touch. The scent is not a sweet scent as one would think with honey in it, however that will change with brewing. Second scent it smells like a grass. An Oolong happens to be a mix of both black and green teas.
This tea does have the familiar vegetal taste in some Green Teas. It has a light color and a light scent. There is a bitter taste with a floral under tone of flavor. All in all it’s a great tea from the Oolong family.
Till next Tea….
