Would you believe a site calling itself Home Discount Store carries fine teas? Well, this little teapot and his humans didn’t believe it either until we tried this tea. They also have the best steeping instructions label we’ve every seen. Check it out: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-home-discount-stores-pai-mu-tan.html

Well, this is a little different in our oolong extravaganza today: a flavored oolong. Don’t worry, oolong lovers, you can taste the tea and those flavorings work well with it. Would my humans ever steer you wrong? Well, at least not on purpose! More info and great photos, including one of me: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-joys-teaspoon-summer-sunshine.html

Another oolong. My humans are in a rut, but with tea like this, it’s a very GOOD rut. See what I mean here: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/03/review-canton-tea-companys-traditional.html

This oolong will keep you sipping long! My humans did the tasting and then sneaked off to have a quite oolong moment while sipping the rest. Details and photos: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/review-english-tea-stores-spring.html

Don’t waste your time looking for needles in haystacks. Lots of lovely needle-shaped tea leaves in this tea. My humans take on it: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/review-thepuriteacoms-emerald-needle.html

My humans can’t stop yakking about this one. “Ooo…it’s just like being in a Russian tea room.” “Gee, I wish we had a samovar to serve it from.” Sheesh! Ok, so they liked it. http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/review-kusmi-teas-russian-evening-no-50.html

My humans like Dragon Well green tea, so they thought a flavored blend based on this tea would be good. Unfortunately, they didn’t taste the tea too much. Lots of great rosebuds and orange pieces, though! http://is.gd/2xF2Do
