Intriguing blend

You have to appreciate saffron in order to fully appreciate what it brings to this blend. Saffron has a naturally astringent quality, which I happen to love. I could tell right away that this was genuine saffron, and the other ingredients make for a very intriguing and enjoyable cup.

I am completely in love with this tea for its unique flavour. Of all the teas that I've tried, this one really stands out. The combination of the oolong tea with the other ingredients, especially the vanilla, is truly outstanding. I enjoy it slightly sweetened.
