It’s been quite awhile I’ve had a White Peony. This is delicious! Exactly what I was looking for with its sweet hay aroma and flavor. I used the entire sample packet, for 30s steeps. So good! The first steep was especially sweet.

This tea is similar to Laoshan Black, but with more sweetness. Not floral at all, it’s more like the sweetness associated with squash or sweet potato, kind of caramelized and toasty. It’s different, and tasty!

So happy to have this back in my cupboard! (along with Yu Lu Yan Cha and Laoshan Black). This tea is such a treat. There are so many notes on this tea it’s not necessary for me to enumerate, I think. If you like Jasmine and haven’t tried this tea, just do it!

I’m annoyed because I just finished a sample and threw away the bag without making sure what it was! I’m pretty sure it was this; but I’m not sure, so note to self: order a sample so I can get a proper tasting note! If this is the one I’m thinking of its also a surprise favorite.

I can’t believe I waited this long to try this tea. I’ve had this sample for some time, and I think I was just trying to drink up other opened packages first. I should have tried this earlier though, because it’s just the sort of oolong I like. This roasted tieguanyin has a great nutty, smooth and slightly floral flavor. As the cup cools it gets slightly sweeter. Very nice! Thanks again, Angel and Teavivre!

Using up my last sample of this. I’m really trying to use up all the little bits of tea so I can order more. :) As always I am enjoying this. I accidentally steeped it a few seconds too lon g and I can tell in the taste, but it’s fine. Thanks again to Teavivre for all the delicious samples they’ve sent over the years! See other notes for more info on this tea.

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 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
