I was really impressed. Very rarely are Four Seasons strong teas. It tasted like a strong, good Tie Guan Yin after 15 seconds. It was almost overpowering. Vanilla was the strongest first note, nevermind there is no vanilla in this. Then there was gardenia, lilac, orchid, and a strong sweet tartness. Also partially vegetal, nectar and a hint creamy mouth feel. I brewed it about 6 times, adding 30 seconds each time and though it got weaker, it delivered. Oddly enough, it reminded me of Mandala’s Tie Guan Yin. If you want to try a four seasons and it be a stronger tea, I recommend this one deeply.
