fresh, nutty, complex

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime.

The dry tea leaves have a rich, nutty aroma with hints of wildflowers. Once steeped the floral aroma takes over--it reminds me of Jasmine, or maybe honeysuckle. The taste is predominantly floral as well, with a smooth, round mouthfeel. There is very little bitterness unless over-steeped. Excellent tea! I would absolutely order it again.

Good but needs to be treated carefully

Likes : Freshness, High Quality.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Morning, Evening.

I got this tea as a free sample and it has a good fresh taste. Its quite dark considering, but I oversteeped it the first time. If your careful it can be made fairly dark and tastes food with honey and milk.

Cashews...

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

The dried leaves of this early 2015 harvest Eden’s Cloud tea are crispy and spindly, evoking memories of Mao Feng. But the scent and flavor are entirely distinct. I agree with the aroma note of cashew, and I also find a nuttiness to the flavor of this darker golden brew. To me the tea is only lightly floral, and I wouldn’t be able to identify specific scents (honeysuckle and wildflowers) without having them suggested to me. I’ll have to do blind testing of some of these teas at some point, and see what aroma and palate notes I come up all on my own. The only thing that really matters is that I really do like this tea, and it really is black, despite having been harvested in spring.

Interesting

I was very keen to try this tea, it's has a wonderful light flavour and is different from both Assamese and Darjeeling teas. It is certainly worth trying, although a similarly priced Darjeeling would have a more complex flavour.

Delicate and subtle, but with layers and layers of flavour. Each mouthful feels like a gift

Extremely light and herbal

Best Served : Morning, Evening.

This was an extremely light, almost watery brew that tasted much like an herbal tea with grassy overtones.
