This tea soothes every fiber of my body.

I enjoyed it western style with a tsp of vanilla syrup.

Although this tea is good, and the bergamot flavoring is definitely a high quality (the smell in the bag is powerful) I believe I like the flavor of the snails themselves better and would have liked this tea more without the essential oil part. Lucky for me Whispering Pines offers Golden Snails in a more traditional style. Along with that, the tea was astringent. The level of astringency wasn’t a deal breaker but it was noticeable and started getting worse after the 2nd or 3rd cup. Next time I will make it gongfu style.

Lastly, I feel like this tea doesn’t have as much stamina as similar teas I have tried. To me, it could have been better in that area. Those are the main reasons why I gave this tea a 79. I think when I try the plain golden snails the score will be closer to 90. :)

I like to drink tea late at night and early in the morning.
I’m here to drink new teas and discuss them.

My first tea love was Gyokuro then Tieguanyin now I am exploring the diverse world of puer.

Happy drinking!
