This is a very nice tea whose flavor reminds me a little of Lifeboat Tea. Its much more refined as it is whole leaf and has nice citrus notes. You can even smell it in the dry tea. The tea has a nice flavor and a mellow taste. Lifeboat would be considered harsh compared to this tea. Very light astringency and just a touch of bitterness on the back of the tongue.
Easy to drink and I like it.

This tea is smoky, mellow and smooth. Hands down, this is the best Lapsang Souchong I have drank. I love smoky and I have drank quite a few Lapsangs. This one smells like a forest fire and the smell lingers over the kitchen and living room. It has a sweetness under the smoke. This one I will reorder.
This tea is becoming one of my favorites. It has notes of pepper and spices with hints of chocolate. It has a smooth and full finish with no bitterness or astringency. I lowered the temp and raised the steep time on this one. I’m still looking for caramel and will keep trying.
This tea looks like green gunpowder tea only black and glossy. It has its own flavor and scent…nutmeg. This is my first tea that had notes of nutmeg in it. Its also in the smell. The tea has a light astringency and a full mouthfeel. No bitterness and smooth, it really has a taste all its own. Not a tea I want to drink all the time, but nice once in a while.
This tea has a slightly sweet taste and is very similar to Keemun. I consider it a mild tea with a little astringency. There is a fruity note to it but I can’t place it. The tea leaves my mouth dry after drinking. I received a lot of samples from Upton Tea but this is not one of my favorites. I will experiment some with the variables and see what I end up with.

This Lapsang Souchong is on training wheels. Its for people who aren’t sure if they like smoky or not. Its lightly smoky and a little sweetness under the smoke. The tea is very mellow and smooth and to me has a peppery finish. Its a good place to start for those who aren’t sure about smoky teas. I really like smoky so I’m happy this only a sample.
First off, I’m not a big fan of Darjeeling teas. This one surprised me as the taste is delicate and has fruity notes. This is not a strong robust tea, the color is a very light amber. The finish is clean and light with out much of an aftertaste. This tea is nice for afternoon sipping.
This tea has a lot of flavor. Its robust and brisk and has a thick malty smell and taste like assam teas. It actually reminds me of coffee in the morning. The mouthfeel is there along with the caffeine kick. This is a great tea to wake up to.
This tea taste better this morning. The tea is smooth, spicy, and slightly sweet. It has a rich earthy smell to it. I’m even getting nice chocolate notes from this tea. Maybe morning is the best time for this tea, but I intend to try it again this afternoon to see what gives. No caramel yet but I intend to keep trying. I’m going to do a little research on Steepster today to check the amount of tea, steeping times, and temp of water on Yunnans to see if I can duplicate it.
This is an interesting tea as I’m getting orange notes from it. A 4 min steep yields a med-dark color liquid. The smell is clean, just a little earthy. This is a mild tea, no bitterness. The tea has a slightly sweet taste and has a dry aftertaste. Very enjoyable.
This Yunnan does have the classic chocolate nuances and the peppery finish. A very earthy and slightly sweet tea. It is also very smooth with no bitterness. I have had better Yunnans, but not at this price point. It is a very nice cup of tea.
This has to be one of the best breakfast blends I have drank. I can taste the assam and it makes for one brisk robust cup of tea. The tea steeps up a dark amber color. It will really wake you up and its a very clean cup of tea. Its very smooth with no bitterness and just a touch of astringency. This very well may become my go to breakfast tea.
Lazy rainy day this morning, so its tea bag time. This is one of the better teas from Twinings and its mellow and smooth. You can taste the citrus and bergamot. Its a nice bagged tea.
Just sitting here on a cold rainy Sunday drinking Paris. With so much hooplah on Steepster the last few days about this tea I figured I may as well devote a whole day to this wonderful tasting tea. It has a very berry taste and is great with no additives. I prefer my teas that way and only add milk or splenda if the tea is too strong or needs something so I can drink it. This tea is perfect and its a good day for basketball and Paris. By the way, my wife is drinking Florence.
Only assam in the cupboard right now, waiting for an order due Monday. This is an ok assam, nothing great but it does the job. I don’t get enough assam tea taste from this one.
This is a very pretty tea but taste is what makes the grade.
I picked this up yesterday at Shaws. Its in a different bottle than the Teas tea. It just says Ito En Golden Oolong tea. This is a delicious unsweetened Oolong ice tea. It tastes Oolong. The tea has a very robust clean taste and I will buy it again. I just wish it wasn’t 1.99 a bottle.
This is a very nice Oolong. Very smooth with no bitterness and a toasty nuttiness in the cup. This is the only Oolong in my cupboard right now, but I intend on trying a few more.
I’m craving chocolate so I did the next best thing to eating too much of it. I actually enjoy drinking Florence more than drinking Paris. The cocoa and the hazelnut are both there and its a very enjoyable tea. Just sit and relax and sip.
