I love this tea. I picked it up on a visit to London and It’s my current favorite (although, to be honest, I don’t have much to compare it with) as well as being the tea that kick started my further interest in tea.

The aroma is heavenly, sweet, a bit floral, and light. The color is a light gold, the leaves are fluffy and pretty. It’s hard to oversteep, I’ve never had it bitter and I’ve brewed it for a lot of different times. Very refreshing, well balanced, and aromatic, the taste has a strong, but not overpowering tone of apricot and a light vegetal flavor. I can drink it pretty much whenever for a nice, gentle pick me up.

Flavors: Apricot, Flowers, Vegetal

Rating Scale:

90-100: Amazing. Will buy and keep on hand all the time if finances and circumstances allow.

80-89: Strong argument for keeping it around all the time, even more than the prospect of trying more new tea. It’s that good.

70-79: Pretty solid. Glad I tried it, several factors that were unique or that I highly enjoyed.

60-69: Nothing that stands out for the most part, but with a quality or two that speaks to me.

50-59: Fairly run of the mill, pleasant but not much more to be said.

40-49: Something here is off putting in an otherwise decent tea.

30-39: There are a few things wrong with this tea. I did not enjoy.

20-29: Disliked this, could maybe see something, some redeeming quality in it others might find worth drinking without spitting back out.

10-19: Begin to question whether any tea is actually, in fact, better than no tea.

0-9: This causes actual food poisoning.
