SuperbExcellentOverpriced

I will first start off by saying that this tea is well over priced at Teavana. I can buy the same quality Ti Kuan Yin elsewhere for around $4.00-$4.50 per ounce. With that being said, this is one of the best Oolong teas out there. I do find though that you really either love this tea, or you hate it. I love it, my wife hates it so..... Anyway, the loose tea itself doesn\'t smell all that appealing. But, when you add the water a wonderful orchid aroma engulfs the air. Once the liquor hits your pallet you know you are drinking a truly fine tea. It is smooth, flowery, clean, and super relaxing. I think the best part about this tea is that you can re-steep many, many, many times. The second and third steeps are my favorites. I have gotten all the way up to 5 steeps with the tea still being drinkable. Next time I will try for six! A couple of pots of this and you will be in Zen land!
