Phenomenal!

I have been a serious tea drinker for over a decade now and have enjoyed Smith Tea for a few years. I primarily drink black tea and some green tea, so I thought I would try one of their staple Oolong offerings (I've only tried the Reserve Series for Oolong), and I am so glad I did. Wow, this tea is exceptional and has so many tasting notes. Fruity and floral, sweet and earthy, inviting and complex. I can't recall being this captured by a tea in a long time. I had to stop the book I was reading to just sit and sip. Can't recommend enough!
