do you know what is sad? When you get to the bottom of a tea tin and you realize this is your last cup of this tea. :( I had a enough left to make some iced tea, so I have about 32 oz. of blink bonnie iced tea to savor over the next few hours, until it is all gone. This tea tastes fantastic iced and a bit stronger than when brewed hot, which makes the tea taste wonderful. Brewed stronger, I can taste subtle nuances that I might not normally taste when hot.

MMMMM! That is all I can say for this tea right now. It tastes phenomenal. The aroma reminds me a bit of caramel sweetness,lemonade, and potpourri. I also smell an inkling of genmaicha, which smells a bit roasted and green. The taste is delicious. The flavor is green, and vegetal, but balances out the astringency from the tea and from the citrus very nicely. The tea glides smoothly in my mouth and leaves my mouth watering, craving more. I would definitely buy this one again, hands down.
spicy, dark, and roasted. A great tea for a stressful saturday
How have I never logged this tea when i’ve had it for about 2 months now??? Anyway, I love this tea. It’s a darker oolong, but has some notes of rock fruits like peach and plum, but has a sweetness on the end of the flavor. This tea also dries my mouth out a little bit, it’s strange really. Most of my mouth feels moisturized (?) by the tea except for the center of my tongue, where it feels dry. Very interesting experience.

This is a wonderful black tea for breakfast, as the name suggests. Usually, I only drink black tea at night or if I really need a good kick in the morning. I sipped on this tea on a Saturday morning with a hot breakfast, which is paired nicely with. The smell of the tea was intoxicating. It smelled a bit like cocao and scones, so it was sweet and robust all in one. The flavor was so much lighter than the smell of the liquor.The taste is light and gentle. I experienced little to no bitterness or tannins in my cuppa, which is good for someone who may forget about their tea by accident(hey, it happens to us all!). The taste is so smooth, that it naturally tastes as if there was creamer or milk already put into the tea.

bought this with the steepster deal a few days ago. I’ve only had a sample of this back when Tony opened Chicago Tea Garden, but it left quite the impression on me, as i’m always thinking back to this tea when trying out other Tie Guan Yins. The taste is very smooth,floral, fruity and just plain fantastic.
fruity flavor, which reminds me of apples. There is a slight sweet finish,which ends rather quickly and makes me want another sip. Wonderful tea. I am very pleased with the group of oolong samples I bought from Tea from Taiwan!!

4th steep- still growing strong. The leaves look gorgeous. will post some pictures on my blog tonight
yum- dark,but not too dark. roasty,nutty with a lingering sweetness that makes this tea wonderful.
my first ever milk oolong! Really great tea. i found the milky notes so interesting and they meshed very well with the light oxidation of the tea. Awesome find! Now i see what all the fuss was about :)
Yum, this is a favorite of mine. nice and mellow for the morning, but packs a punch w/ flavors.
added some matcha into my morning smoothie, very tasty
perfect tea to end my weekend at the beach with ;)
i’ve been drinking so much oolong lately that i have ignored other types. This is a great tea, I can taste the smoky level of flavor, and is earthy and enjoyable.
Drinking a matcha latte this morning..Mmm.
