Sweet with cardamome tones

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

I find this tea delicious. It is very gentle, fruity and with sweet taste. I also can notice a bit if cardamome in its taste and smell. Reminds me about some kind of rye bread. Very tasty! I think it is perfect for afternoon!

Excellent for an Afternoon Sip

Likes : High Quality.

Best Served : Afternoon.

I purchased a 100g packet of this tea in my order placed on January 7th, 2016. Since receiving the tea, I have had an opportunity to brew up a dozen or so cups. I found this to be a delicately flavored tea with a slightly nutty fermented character and some fleeting floral features. This tea brews quite easy and has a wonderfully full flavor. It is balanced, flavorful, and nicely arranged. It has a great aroma as well. I have found it to be very good for an afternoon sip.

Average Autumn flush tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Sweet caramel notes on the nose. Liquor has very mild astringency and some bitterness. Not much by natural sweetness. Pretty average overall

Some muscatel notes, quite lovely!

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Definite muscatel notes on this one, needs to be treated with respect when brewing it to get the best flavor. A great tea!

Great tea.

This tea has a very high quality taste to it. It has a flavor that is reminiscent of grape. It produces a very refreshing liquor with an excellent mouth feel.

Mixed Feelings

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : No Flavor, Weak.

Best Served : Anytime.

I found this tea to be very light in the beginning then tapering of to a mild pleasant long citrus aftertaste. My palate never experienced the caramel, or smoky notes. I experienced the citrus notes in the aftertaste. Dry this tea has a pleasant grassy aroma. Maybe I should have added a bit of honey which may have enhanced the flavor and/or increased the amount of tea by 1/2 teaspoon.
