One of the best
The Ruby Oolong is one of the best teas I have tried. I have only gone to a second steeping, but based on the flavor I would imagine that the third steeping would be fabulous too!
Very woodsy with a very subtle tart bite. I can't quite taste the pear but the cedar has a heavy undertone. I received this as a gift from a co-worker who purchased it and did not enjoy the flavor. I absolutely loved how the leaves, after steeping, expanded so drastically. It looked awesome in my cup (but freaked me out a bit at first).
