This tea is good, but not very notable. I added cream and sugar.

Greener character, with an aroma that is simultaneously smoky, woody, and floral. Flavor surprisingly clear and clean. However, aftertaste is muddled and slightly more smoky than I like. Medium-bodied. I find it less fruity than the description suggests, and less than a number of other oolongs.

When Se Chung oolongs have this sort of smoky character, I want them to have a bit more woody tones or more roast to them. This one struck me as being too much like a chun mee green tea, but without the bite.

This is not my favorite of the generic or blended se chung oolongs, that title goes to one I have had from Upton Tea Imports, but this is above average for a se chung that is not of a more specific named variety.

The pricing on this tea is funny, there's a big price drop from the 3/4oz to 1 pound option. I'd say it's a very good deal for quality by the pound, but the 3/4oz quantities seem a notch overpriced.
