    This beautiful oolong smells like roasted pumpkin seeds and semolina right out of the bag. As we start steeping, we pick up herbaceous & complex rosemary notes along with white pepper & toasted burdock. As the tea opens up, its true nature starts to show with rich candied citrus peel and warm marigold. Through multiple infusions, the tea remains tightly composed, bright and sunny. As the aftertaste builds up, you can taste the beautiful stoney minerality of Wuyishan and the Li Family’s rocky soil.
