We sampled this lovely oolong tea though a tea class at Leaf, and loved it so much we just had to bring some home. I'm looking forward to enjoying the rest of the bag! It had a wonderful, complex flavor that changed with each steep when made with the gong-fu method we learned about in tea class. I would highly recommend this tea, and the tea class if you can grab a seat some evening.
Delicious!... and already gone! :(
