This is a strongly flavored green tea. I love that it is tart. I cannot taste the base of the green tea as it just melds into the fruit flavors.

I think this is a great herbal. I love the giant fruit chunks and the fact that it is such a pretty cup. The taste is very bright and I can make out both the mango and the oranges.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

This is a pretty standard Jasmine tea, however, I kinda thought the Jasmine was very cloying and sticky-sweet. I generally like floral tea.

I love the pearls! I have not tried any other Jasmine pearls but will be trying some soon. This has a very soothing quality.

drank Jasmine Golden Yunnan by thepuriTea

This was a REALLY enjoyable cup in the car on my way to work this morning. The flavors are balanced and not overly cloying.

I drank an entire car-tumbler of this and was not at all overwhelmed by any of the flavors as I can sometimes be with large quantities of flavored tea.

I had previously ordered a sample size of this but will be adding it to the list for next time I make an online tea purchase.

Drank this green tea at the office this afternoon. Used water below a boil. On first steep the strawberry taste was very obvious, on second the more delicate green tea flavors were present. Nothing subtle or sneaky about this tea – a pretty good green with flavors. I will brew the remainder of my sample pack but will likely not be obtaining any more for my tea cabinet.

This was a great tea to start my morning. Not super astringent and has a great mouth feel. While this tea is flavored it is not overly so. The flavors compliment the tea and are in the backround.

Drinking this now. Nice basic black tea with mango overtones. Not super fruity.

I had to microwave the water and am not sure of the temp. I made it pretty hot because this is a black. I steepted it for 4-5 minutes as intructed by Argo.

I am sitting at work feeling the ocean breeze! This tea is so sweet and yummy without any sugar.

I made this in a giant pitcher that sits on my desk. I will enjoy sipping from this all day.

I am not to sure of water temp as I just used the hot water from the dispenser at work.

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
