When I opened the lid to the brewed tea, it smelled like a huge cigar. I was surprised how much this smelled like tobacco!

This is my first experience with yellow tea and DF. It has a strong flavor for such a light brew. I am just not a fan of it. It has a smoky like flavor. It does have a sweetness to it. It reminds me of pine nuts, which I don’t like.

I just couldn’t down the cup! I think for me, to enjoy this tea, I would need to be in a certain mood. I just didn’t like it.

This is the first time where someone’s description for a sub-20 rating actually sounds appealing to me. I’ve only had a yellow tea once before and it was disappointing as well, but that was because it had no character at all. This sounds interesting but I like smokey and nutty.

Yeah, I just hate smoky teas, I love smoked meats. I can send you the rest of it, it’s like maybe 20 grams. I know I won’t drink it, rather give it to someone else who might like it!

Mel: I will take it if you don’t want it. Would you like to swap?

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
