I couldn’t figure out what kind of tea I wanted today! Well, if truth be told, I would have wanted Sugar Carmel Oolong again if I had any more! But since I do not – I thought I’d give another Golden Moon sample a try.

1st steep – 3 min. Delicate and delicious!!! It seems I’ve found a white tea that I love! When they say it’s flavored with “sweet melon nectar” they are not kidding! I feel like I am drinking a rare nectar of the gods. This tea makes me feel as if I should be laying on a chaise lounge being fanned, and offered peeled grapes and such, not sitting at my desk in snowy Philadelphia!!!! The flavor is not cloying or overly sweet – it’s absolute perfection to my taste buds.

2nd steep: 4 min – Less melon, more white tea flavor. Still a great cup of tea. I’ll keep to 2 steeps though.

Interesting, interesting.

Mine are Coconut Pouchong, Sinharaja + Honey Pear, but I wouldn’t mind getting a tin of the first two. Haven’t had the last one yet so I can’t say for sure. Now I’m interested to know what everyone else wants a tin of (from Golden Moon).

Ricky – I keep reading everyone’s notes after I log each sample and it’s so interesting to see who loved what, who loathed what, etc. This sampler is just too much fun!

This one didn’t do it for me, mainly because I hate the taste of melon. Although it really came close to being delicious, regardless of the melon! Both chais are awesome in my book. :)

teaplz – that is how I am about mint! I don’t really care for it and I have been putting off all the mint teas in the sampler because of that. And there are a lot!!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
