Usually when I see tasting notes on teas or wines, I have to stretch my imagination a bit to see if I can detect them. This tea, however, genuinely tastes like longan and sweet potatoes. It's a nice oolong from a single farm, with an aroma that's a bit unique. I will definitely buy again, as well as other teas for Three Gems.
I love this tea - it reminds me of the one that was served at my grandpa’s house. It caught my attention because of the name, at first I thought that maybe this had a same processing of Luwak coffee and was afraid that it literally had duck shit but upon reading the story and looking at the ingredients I realized it wasn’t the case. Really nice tea, enjoyed it very much.
I originally purchased this tea as a joke for my boyfriend. We ended up loving this tea! We were able to steep it multiple times and it held up flavor wise. I definitely would purchase this again.
I love this tea. First because of its robust, smoky, yet mild flavor. Second, the name is terrific and giving this to friends when they’ve had a crappy day is just a nice way to show someone you care during this crap year. Third because it’s sourced with integrity. And last, I gotta support my Asian American female entrepreneurs!
