"For years I have enjoyed green teas, my favourites being an oolong or sencha and I haven't dabbled much with high quality black teas until this one. My daughter recommended that I try this one and highly recommended it. I have to say that I'm a convert. It brews to a gorgeous crisp orange colour and creates a wonderful perfume. Taste wise is fresh, lively and delicious. Very enjoyable."
