I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this yet! This a very good genmaicha, all toasty and green. Would definitely buy again.

I really like this earl grey! Would happily put back in my cupboard.

Best breakfast tea ever, and now I’ve finished it for the last time. :( Even though it was very nice of Verdant to share their recipe to make this, I just don’t realistically see myself blending this tea myself. Sigh…maybe one day when I get desperate enough.

This is a really good white tea. Sweet hay and honeysuckle flavors predominate. I would happily buy this again!

I polished off this tea this morning. It’s a good breakfast tea. I looked at my last tasting note for this tea, and it was from 3 years ago!! I knew I had had this tea for a long time…but wow. It is still good after sitting that long.

I believe this is the only Keemun I’ve ever tried. Based on this one, I’d certainly try others. I like how it has a powerful, smoky flavor but doesn’t overwhelm me, like lapsangs do. This is one I’d welcome back into my cupboard.

Another sipdown! I am slowly making my way through samples. I haven’t had a green oolong in a while and this hits the spot today. Exactly what I wanted – smooth, floral, and rich.

Another sipdown! I think I’m going to put this on my reorder list. It’s just so fresh, even after I’ve had it for awhile, and easy on the tummy. The jasmine taste is flowery and sweet. It tastes very real, unlike some jasmine teas that taste almost artificial or perfumey.

I wanted to compare these with Teavivre’s black pearls, and I think I prefer Teavivre’s. These pearls have 2 good steeps in them and then I find it quite weak. I find myself just wanting more with these. Good enough, but could be better.

I’ve had this tea in my cupboard for a ridiculously long time, never opened. Fruity tea just isn’t usually my favorite. However, I find this tea surprisingly pleasant. Pineapple and mango are the predominant flavors, and it’s kind of peachy as well. This tea is quite sweet and doesn’t need anything added.

Just finished up my last bit of this. Certainly one I want to restock! I love this roasted tea. Looking at my previous note, it’s apparently grown on me! I didn’t like it as much at first.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, and white tea. I especially love those black teas with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite. I enjoy green tea, but need to be in the mood for it to actually want it.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
