This rating is probably a little baist since I don’t particularly like black teas. Strong black tea taste with slightly floral undertones. Had to add a lot of honey to finish. Very strong blend.
So it’s not really breakfast time….but i’m a college student so i’m still waking up. I normally don’t like back tea, too bitter (guess that’s astringeny?) and i usually have to put in a ton of honey to be able to drink it. However this one was not bad. It’s smooth and light, with honey undertones. Just a bit of bitterness at the end. I usually like fancier type teas but not a bad plain jane tea if your in the mood.

Smells very strongly of pears and sweetness. It’s almost like honey but not quite. Almost darker. Stepped this tea is very dark, darker than I would have expected. Tastewise a little disapointing. To me the black tea overpowers the pear and the tea isn’t sweet at all which is a little confusing cause it’s honey pear.
When i first saw this I thought, ginger and lemon……ok strange. However the tea is a delicious mix. Kinda reminds me of those ricolla herb and lemon cough drops. Very lemony with a slight herbal quality too it. Personally would have preferred more ginger. But overall not a bad tea.
Crisp and refreshing. The Melon taste complements the white tea very nicely. And I don’t even like melon! It’s a very subtle taste that I enjoyed a lot. Reminds of spring for some reason. Just wish it felt like spring outside.

Back at school and back into the swing of things. I liked this tea much better than the regular jasmine tea. No bitterness to the tea, and the leaves are so cute! Light yellow green colored brew and very fragrant.

I’m completly new to darleeling so I’m not quite sure what musquetal is. I do detect a sweet fruity taste and than a slightly bitter nutty aftertaste, almost like when I used to chew on acorns as a kid. I don’t really detect a floral taste, but I do smell it. Not one of my faves, but not a bad tea.

GM Sample 14/31
This tea is very light and airy. Very pale green color. This tea has a very sweet and refreshing scent to it. The hot tea wasn’t very impressive to me. However as the tea cooled down there was a nice faint grassy taste mixed with honey. Personally I prefer something a with a little more taste, but a nice change from the very complex pu-reh and lapsong I had recently.
I had barely opened this package, when I was hit with a very smokey odor. Smells almost like bacon without the greasy smell. The tea is very smooth and strong in flavor. Very smokey with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not something i would drink everyday, but not a bad tea.
