The aroma of the tightly curled leaves is, as expected, delightfully pleasant, with notes of sweet honey and toasted sesame seeds, there are also notes of spicebush, chestnut, and a gentle orchid note. This is a lightly roasted oolong so it still has the floral notes along with the sweetness that roasting brings out, Tea Ave's website (and awesome packaging) gives the roasting level a 4 (out of 10 I am assuming) and I certainly agree with that.

The first tea really starts out floral and sweet, notes of honeysuckle and lilac, a tiny hint of spinach...and then hello roasted! The midtaste and finish is all about the roasted sesame and chestnuts with a sweet honey taste all throughout. The sweetness lingers for a while after sipping experience is finished.
