This is a really interesting tea. The smell when we first opened the tin was intense and lingered well after the lid had been closed. Citrus, cinnamon and the cloves all blended together. Once I steeped it, the cinnamon and cloves became the dominant scent. Really enjoyed the tea hot..but as it cooled off the citrus notes became more dominant leading to a strange blend of flavours. Would love to see how this tastes with milk added to it.

I don’t have the words or the computer to do this justice. Writing on an iPad just doesn’t work for some things. First steep, western style as I have no gaiwan :( and I’m looking forward to the next steeps. I’ll try and write more later to do this justice.

Received this tea as a sample from The Persimmon Tree and I’m not sure what to make of it. There isn’t much in the way of orange going on here – there’s a lot of rooibos. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not really what I’d expect from an Orange tea. I’ll have to try this again and see if it was the water temp or timing.

In another note…it would be nice to consolidate the teas for this company under one listing – there are two going on. And I’m not sure what’s up with the picture I uploaded…tried with both the URL and uploading an image and it’s always a blurry mess once it’s on the site. sigh

That is a problem with a lot of companies on here Red Leaf Tea included and many others! Its frustrating! I wish there was a way as well.

drank Strawberry Oolong by Butiki Teas

After multiple attempts at drinking this tea I’ve finally decided that it’s just not the tea for me. However, I won’t hold that against the tea. It is a GREAT tea. The balance of flavors, the smell…everything about the tea says love me! But I don’t. So I will leave this tea for others (Helena) but I’m happy that I got a chance to try it and still think that this is a tea many will enjoy.

Helena

nah I would rather have the peach :D

Sil

lol I’ll have to give the peach a try Helena. It might juts be that oolongs are not me thing. I think I’ll need another order to find out grin

Helena

I thought you tried the peach oolong already and had to experiment with temp and steeping or I’m confusing you with someone else :D I find the strawberry is a bit much for me. The grape was interesting but so far the peach is the best of the 3. You can always try Citron Oolong from David’s Tea it tastes mostly like lemon :D

mmmm I really like how the flavours in this one blend together without overpowering one another. While I’d normally have this later in the day, I decided to start my day out with it for a treat. It’s my second last day of this job and today is day 3 with the personal trainer so I need a little pick me up! :)

drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

So I really need to try this iced sometime. I seriously love this tea – though it always throws me for a loop on the first sip because it’s hot and because of the taste I’m expecting a cold smoothy type drink :) I really think Stacy nailed this one and for anyone who enjoys mangos it’s a keeper.

This is even better cold!

So i have to say I really enjoy this one – better than the Mandarin Silk by a bunch. The rooibos isn’t overpowering the tea so I’m still enoying it and the vanilla isn’t too strong. Instead it just adds to the creamy factor. I’d order this one again to have as a nice treat in the evening.

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.
