As I first opened this package I was amazed! It’s DOUBLE Packaged – for extra freshness!! At first sniff – the first word that came to mind was “Crispy”.
Awwww-yeah! This is Nice! VERY nice!
As the air hit the loose leaf the aroma was enhanced to a Croissant-like aroma!
The color post infusion is a medium brown.
The taste is brilliantly bold! Very defined! It’s smooth yet chewy and leaves a semi-sweet aftertaste that I really like!
This is VERY memorable! I like this VERY much! So much so that’s it’s easy to say it’s made it to my personal upper 90s percentile and not many teas have been put in that category!
