The aroma is lightly floral and lightly green with the usual earthiness I associate with oolongs.

The taste is slightly bitter, like a green, with hints of orange blossom and a hint of ginseng. The taste is both very pleasant and subtle.

After multiple brews the taste becomes more green and herbal and less floral which is also very pleasant.

I have seen this tea at my local Asian Market but have not gotten around to picking it up (they have a LOT of teas to try and my list is extensive) but I must certainly move this to the top!

I have tried quite a few teas from Asian markets and this brand, which comes in a tall cylinder, is definitely among the best finds for me, probably the single best Dong Ding I've tried in its price range. I've bought it multiple times and it's been pretty consistently good too.
