I'm reviewing this tea from memory; it has since been discontinued, but I drank it regularly for some time, back before I had created RateTea, so I have a good sense of it.

Of all the teas I've sampled (from Ten Ren or any other company) it seemed most similar to Ten Ren's Ti Kuan Yin in tea bags--although it was noticeably different. This tea had more of a fresh taste.

It was a medium-dark-roast Chinese oolong that was slightly edgy and had earthy, herbaceous qualities. I remember this one as being slightly more floral, but more floral like a black tea, not like a green oolong.

It was a toss-up whether I liked this one or the other more. I think this one was perhaps a bit more of an acquired taste as it had more aromas unfamiliar to a typical Western tea drinker. Although I have moved away from tea bags, I was a little sad to see that this one discontinued, and that's one reason I decided to post this review.

Like Ten Ren's other offerings, I thought this offered unparallelled quality for a tea bag. I recently tried an oolong in a tea bag from Choice organics, and was disappointed, and remembered the days when I used to drink these Ten Ren tea bags frequently.
