lala sent this one my way so i could get in a taste before comitting to ANOTHER tin of damn fine tea – i think this will bring me to 6? in the house because yes, that’s right…i bought this after having it today. So good. I am immensely happy that lala was kinda enough to send this my way because i would have passed on this for sure, simply because 4.4oz is a LOT of tea…especially when you’ve got 4? other damn fine tea tins that are mostly full. lol this was just the right balance of smokey and not bitter and yes. yum. that is all.

Final Count: 81 (thank you lala!!!!)

Glad you like it. It sure is an excellent blend! P.S. I was waiting for your review all day.

this harvest seems a little different from the last one i loved. I think i’m noticing that i prefer autumn harvest to spring harvest as a generality across teas. Still enjoying this but man, the last batch was AMAAAAZing! :)

flavoured tea from today! I always really love this creamy vanilla caramel sort of sweet thang that this tea has going on. I’m glad i have another 50g kicking around once the last of this is finished. So good. My favourite tea from Nina’s.

I’m still a fan of this tea. As a result, i totally took 3 straight teas to work with me because these straight teas have lots of flavour! I like that this isn’t the usual type of keemun that i usually have. instead this is almost more of a sweet tea versus a little smokey. noms!

Most awesome tea of the day today + a little cacao made for me getting through the day without losing it! GGOOOOOO TEA!

Kittenna

Is this the latest batch? I’m planning on leaving mine sealed for a while and was curious about the harvest. All I remember if you discussing Zhu Rong and Yu Lu Yan Cha.

Sil

uh this batch is from july 2013 ro 2014…i can’t recall which. Terri gave it to me. I haven’t opened the preorder that i picked up from this year’s most recent harvest.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
