The aroma is...well, it is awesome, there are notes of dried cherries and apricots, with more subtle notes of sweet potatoes, roasted peanuts, and lastly a tiny hint of cream. It is very much so iconic for a Yunnan black tea, at least for me it is, it has all the notes I expect when sniffing a fuzzy gold tea, but with ...

The aroma of the dry tea is rich and quite sweet, with notes of cocoa, roasted peanuts, yams, honey, and a delicate finish of dried cherry. It is nothing short of mouthwatering, but I do have a great love for this kind of tea.

The first steeping is light, a creamy blend of sweet cocoa, roasted peanuts and a rich aft...

The aroma is a blend of roasted nuts, cocoa, and beets, it is quite savory rather than sweet. Brewing the tea brings out a fruity quality and sweetness along with the roasted nuts and cocoa quality.

The taste is quite bold and rich, it starts out with roasted nuts and dark chocolate, it has a dry mouth feel and a s...

The aroma of this tea is fairly delicate with notes of muscatel, oak, and summer berries. When brewed it takes a turn for the malty and stronger oak notes.

The taste is bright and clean with notes of muscatel, sweetness, and dark chocolate. It is a great afternoon tea.

The aroma is very light and floral and the taste matches! I find the taste to be a mix of floral and citrus with a very mild tea flavor. Very subtle and enjoyable!

I only got a sample if this tea but definitely plan on getting more from Agagio as it might be my favorite of their teas
