Nutty, thick, rich cup of tea that can be steeped 3 times. Syrup notes at the end and smoothness throughout. All this and cute squirrels on the package!

Flavors: Almond, Creamy, Hazelnut, Maple Syrup

My boyfriend got this as a sample when he bought me some tea ware as a Valentine’s gift. It was a good sized sample and I picked a large chunk to taste today. I might try lower water temp on the next tasting. It is sweet, and a little acidic, with some bitterness arriving by the third steep. Light in the cup and in the mouth, an everyday cup of sheng

Flavors: Floral, Sweet

I am not a big fan of flavored tea, but this was awesome! Very creamy banana to begin, with a bit of walnut. Almost like a banana cream pie, but not quite so sweet. Multiple resteeps possible, and the butterscotch didn’t show up until the third steep.

This is a fair example of LS that is smoky smelling and smoking tasting. I wouldn’t say this is anything special, but a nice weekday tea for a morning pick me up. I can get it from the bulk tea at the local gourmet food market and is a staple in my cupboard when I don’t feel like it’s a pu-erh morning.

I’m not a big fan of white tea, and this one was just not complex enough for me. I only tried two steepings, so I will try a few more with the second pouch. There were a few sweet notes, but not enough to keep me interested.

A very nice example of a malty Assam without bitterness. But it doesn’t have a whole lot of maltyness or coppery metallic taste either. The second steep tasted much like the first. An enjoyable cup of tea but not one I’d need in my tea cupboard

First steep was too grassy, acidic, and bitter for my taste. The second steep has lost the bitterness, and has been replaced by a mild apricot sweetness. Not a tea I would reach for again, but it’s nice to taste once. I was surprised that it is a black tea, I would describe it as a green.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Grass

This maybe a fermented tea, but it’s unlike any pu-erh I’ve ever tasted. That being said, I really liked this tea. It tasted like roasted grass to me, and unlike any Hojicha. I get the mahogany notes too. Not really tasting the grapes or much sweetness. The tea is complex and different from black or pu-erh teas.

Flavors: Grass, Wood

I started drinking more tea about 5 years ago when I found that even my half -caf coffee was making me jittery and then sleepy after the caffeine wore off. While I started out with mostly Teavana, but soon expanded my tea cupboard to include lapsang souchon, pu-erh, and other strong black teas. I do enjoy oolongs, green, and other teas, as well as a nice tisane for an evening cuppa.
