I enjoyed the subtle flavor of this tea and would drink it again. The smell was a little strange at first, smelling kind of like pea soup, but faded into a more floral tone as it steeped.

Long, wiry leaf is dark in color for a pouchong / Bao Zhong.

Upon brewing, produces an intensely aromatic cup! Aroma floral, honey-like, and very complex. Buttery smooth yet with depth and richness. Full-bodied yet without much astringency.

I brewed a second cup, and while it was still quite flavorful and full-bodied, it lacked the floral aroma, and it had a soapy taste to it. I find this is actually the norm among this type of tea though, and I don't think this quality detracted much from the tea.

This was far above average for this type of tea, and although it's pricey, it's priced lower than a number of teas that I thought were about as good and not organic certified. I'd choose this over Upton's TT92, which I was previously a big fan of, for these reasons.

This tea is very pleasant, easy to drink, and has a somewhat floral scent and flavor. It tastes very similar to green tea to me
