Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this to try!

Delish! I love the blending of the apricot and the pear – the flavor is very authentic, so authentic that I can almost taste the pulp. It’s very nectar-like.

I do wish this blend didn’t have the hibiscus, but, it is still quite acceptable with it. Yummy!

Very refreshing and unique!

This tastes a bit more like an Oolong than a white tea, and even has a soft mouthfeel that is similar to a dark oxidized Oolong. Notes of raw wood, spice, fruit and honey greet the palate, and a slight acidic taste lingers in the finish. It’s really very interesting and quite delicious!

drank Milk Oolong by thepuriTea

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way! I am always happy to try an Oolong!

I have tasted a lot of Oolong teas, but very few Milk Oolong teas.

Heavenly! Soft, fluffy cloud-like! It has a thick, creamy texture like whole milk, and such a delicious flavor that is sweet, nutty and vegetative. This is quite possibly the most perfect Milk Oolong I’ve ever tasted. Fantastic!!!

Amazing! I do love a good Yunnan – and this certainly fits the bill… to a TEA!

Pleasantly starchy with a sweet potato taste, hints of spice and earth and wood come and go throughout the sip. It finishes with a somewhat dry astringency.

A very fine Yunnan indeed!

ETA: I need to add a huge THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I really loved this – thank you so much!!!

Delicious! The cranberry and orange taste vibrant and juicy. The spices are very mild and are more of an accent to the flavor rather than a strong presence in the cup.

The black tea is fairly mellow with a bit of astringency – slightly drying. Pleasantly sweet without any additions but I prefer it with a little bit of honey. Nice and autumn-ish!

This is really REALLY good. I love the floral touches in the flavor of this tea – it really enhances the wine taste.

The flavor is very light, but extraordinarily pleasant. One of my favorite wine-infused teas.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea – it’s one that I’ve wanted to try for a while now!

The floral notes of this tea are very pleasant – sharp yet sweet, and an excellent contrast with the brisk flavor of the black tea and the sumptuous flavor of the fruit.

Delicious! I’m really glad I got to try this!

OK, I’m glad I saved this one for last. I love the way the bergamot comes through the rich chocolate flavor. This is SO GOOD.

The citrus-y bergamot flavor is perfectly paired with the sweet chocolate flavor. It is sweet and creamy and decadent.

I so enjoyed this collection of truffles! They are absolutely awesome!

A really lovely Oolong – rich and nutty in flavor, with underlying tones of fruit and spice. It has a smooth taste.

I have to leave in a few minutes… please check my previous tasting note for my thoughts on this tea. It’s a nice twist on the classic Earl Grey.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
