Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
I love Jasmine Oolong teas … and having tried a few of Zi Chun’s teas … I knew that this one would be top-notch. The teas from Zi Chun Tea Co are among some of the very best I’ve ever tasted.
This has a lovely Jasmine flavor – sweet and exotic! It is creamy from the Oolong, but the sharp notes of the jasmine offset the creaminess just enough to create a soft, smooth texture without being too overwhelmingly “heavy.”
A really good Jasmine Oolong, here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/04/15/premium-jasmine-oolong-tea-from-zi-chun-tea-co/

This is really interesting … I’m very unfamiliar with the lulo fruit. I described the appearance of this fruit in my full-length review as a fruit that looks a bit like an orange that had a funky twisted romance with a kiwi fruit.

A very interesting tea. I taste strawberry, black tea, and berry notes. I also taste notes of citrus. Quite a unique tea, I liked it.
This is one of the better Tropical teas I’ve tasted, and I’ve had quite a few. I really like the Oolong base with this one! Very interesting … very unique!
The pineapple is a sweet, juicy taste and melds beautifully with the Oolong base, the orange really brightens the cup, and the coconut marries nicely with the creamy notes of the Oolong. I really like this!

I was excited to try this variation of Earl Grey (as I am to try any variation of Earl Grey! I love me some Bergamot!) This is truly a unique combination … bergamot with strawberry and black currant! Yummy!
The black tea is fairly mild with this tea, which in most cases, I prefer it to be a little more aggressive in taste but, with so much going on here – bergamot, strawberry, black currant – I really wanted to taste each of these notes too, so I didn’t mind the softer approach by the black tea.
The flavoring is interesting, there is almost a ‘wine-like’ quality to it, and I found this to be very intriguing. A really nice Earl Grey twist!
This is a decent Pomegranate flavored White tea. I love Pomegranate, and I think that this tea captured the tart yet sweet flavor of the pomegranate quite well.

I enjoyed this flavored black tea from 52teas. I really can’t think of a “cola” flavored tea from 52Teas that I’ve not liked … somehow, Frank manages to capture that “cola” taste really well. This tea is no exception to that.
Overall, this was a very delicious blend. The black tea has a nice caramel-y undertone and it accentuates the caramel taste of the cola very nicely. I’m not a big rum fan (well, I’m not a big fan of any alcoholic drink, really) but, I like the alcoholic drink flavored teas … and this one is very refreshing.
Paris is one of my favorite teas from Harney & Sons. This afternoon, I took my youngest daughter and her best friend to a tea house in Ridgefield http://steepster.com/places/3633-myrtles-tea-house-and-herbery-ridgefield-wa
We had their Afternoon Tea which includes a pot of tea of our choosing, and whenever I have tea at Myrtle’s I always choose Paris. It was delicious, as was the food that was served with it: amazing chilled strawberry soup, an assortment of sandwiches, fresh fruit, a fresh scone right out of the oven served with Key Lime Butter (so good!) and an assortment of desserts. So yummy!
This tea smells amazing. Very fragrant, nice floral tones and a strong fruity overtone.
Even though the name of the tea evokes thoughts of the cereal – it doesn’t taste like it. But it is a sweet, fruity tasting tea, and I really enjoyed it. I like the combination of the pineapple, papaya and strawberry. It’s a really tasty blend.

A really tasty tea! I was very happy with the way the chocolate and coconut were represented in this cup. Sweet, creamy and delicious, with a nice earthy undertone. A really good chocolate tea.

This was tasty, although, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get a chocolate-y taste that was promised to me in the description of the tea. I tasted the orange and a hint of the creamy vanilla, but the chocolate was sadly lacking. If I hadn’t read the description, I would not have even realized that there was supposed to be chocolate notes in this … but when I focus on the sip intently, the chocolate is there … it’s just so very faint.
As the tea cools slightly, the chocolate notes begin to emerge. It still isn’t chocolate-y enough for this chocoholic, but, overall, the cup was certainly drinkable.
