This has to be the most drinkable young sheng puerh that I have yet to have encountered. It brews up a pale brew with a slightly sweet taste with any traces of bitterness or smoke commonly associated with young sheng puerh. Future infusions grow slightly stronger and “puerh notes” begin to emerge yet the enjoyable light and sweet nature remains in this tea.

Looking over the leaves of this tea alone I can tell that it is a higher quality tea as compared to the other cheaper Formosa Oolong offered by Adagio. It has a much lighter and smoother taste to it which includes some more floral flavor notes. Although to be quite honest I prefer the cheaper variety for its simple more earthy flavor.

A very enjoyable dark oolong that is lighter and does not have any clear roasted notes. Overall a smooth rich taste that is slightly earthy and woodsy and at a very cheap price for oolong that does not equate low quality in this case.

drank Pure Camomile by Twinings

Wow I used to think that herbals are pretty much herbals but boy was I wrong. This one is not as sweet and honey like than the other chamomile tea I have on hand. Not that it is bitter or anything is wrong with it, just that it lacks the natural honey flavor notes that I fell in love with another brand.

drank Cozy Chamomile by Bigelow
224 tasting notes

Its been a while since I’ve had Chamomile tea so it is really hard to judge how it compares to others. What stood out to me with Bigelow Cozy Chamomile the most is the sweetness of the floral notes that come off as tasting a bit like honey to me. So if you like Chamomile with honey this could be worth trying if you want to try reducing your sugar intake as you might find that it does not need honey. Overall a good tea but quite honestly if it wasn’t the need for getting to bed at a decent time and the fact that Chamomile is a natural sleep aid I would not be going out of the way to drink it, but this is good enough to be a semi regular evening tea for me.

A one brew sized sample that came with an order. Overall a bit smoky and bitter for me but I have a feeling that it might have been due to my brewing so I am going to refrain from rating this one.

I’ve never had Champgane before so it is hard for me to fully evaluate the wine aspect of this tea. Overall it has a very light and delicate flavor where even the raspberry blends in well so it comes off more as light flavor notes and not overwhelmingly fruity.

drank Pink Sonoma by Red Leaf Tea

Pink Sonama is a very wonderful fruity white tea that comes off as being more like white wine than a tea in some ways. If you love White Zinfandel wine than you will love this tea as it has the same sweet light fruitiness and melon like flavor notes.

A very interesting floral white tea, that outside of the clear lack of alcohol in some way comes off as a bit more like a white wine than a white tea. A light more floral taste that blends in nicely with the wine flavor.

Normally Assam is not a favorite tea of mine as it comes off as way too malty in a bitter way but this one is actually very good. The tea comes off as lighter for an Assam with a wonderful Cabernet aroma and taste that goes with it. Even if you don’t think you like Assam tea, if you enjoy Cabernet red wine then this is a tea that is really worth trying.
