This was a good tea, but I wasn't blown away. Interestingly, the dry tea smells like pumpkin guts. That's the second time I've smelled tea leaves with this aroma within a week. It's very pleasant, but I'm a little confused.

That being said, I didn't pick up on any nuances in the flavor. The flavor here seems heavier. I think this tea may be a little more oxidized, and maybe I just prefer the more lightly oxidized oolongs.
