Got this as part of a sampler during a sale and it is tasty, but unremarkable. The almond is very present but kind of artificial, and it is VERY juicy and sweet without adding sweetener but I wouldn’t say I can pick out plum taste. And I would know, I adore plum! Overall, I will enjoy finishing up the sample baggie, but will not be repurchasing. Recommended for those who like their tea to remind them a fair bit of juice.

Love.

That is pretty much all I can say. I love rose, I love mint, and I think white tea is just fabulous for carrying flavor. I was worried the mint would overwhelm this but it really doesn’t. Both the rose and mint are equally represented, making it a calming tea I could see enjoying hot or iced depending on the season. I cannot wait to get more!

Holy cow, this is SUPER butterscotch! Like, most butterscotch teas taste like tea with a bit of butterscotch. This tastes like butterscotch with a bit of tea, particularly if you sweeten it at all! Awesome to have for a dessert cup…or first thing in the morning like I did.

I really enjoy this, though I wouldn’t have guessed honeysuckle just by tasting it. It does have a sweetness, and a fruitiness to it that tempers the normal earthy pu-erh taste. I could definitely see repurchasing to have as an everyday pu-erh!

This tea is tasty, but probably not for everyone. I did short steeps, and did about 4-5 of them. I did 30 seconds to start, and added 30 seconds subsequent times. This led to a very mild flavor, more muted than I normally prefer, but it did good things for this tea. The flavors here are very mineraly and metallic almost, which taste more like ocean breeze when the tea isn’t very strong. I imagine if brewed for a full few minutes right off the bat, this would taste more like licking a pole.

Flavors: Metallic, Mineral, Ocean Breeze

I am a really big fan of this tea! It is mild but doesn’t lack in flavor. It has a definite tropical pull but the rose is present and keeps things a bit unexpected. I will absolutely be buying this once my tin from the subscription runs out!

I enjoyed this one a lot. It definitely has baked notes and the almond flavor is strong without being overwhelming or too artificial. However, to really get the “cookie” sense, add a little sweetener and milk.

Super sour and tart, which I like, but I think other companies do this better, cheaper, hence the not recommend.

I really enjoyed this, but didn’t think it was necessarily worth the steep price. It held up to many steepings, and I had to quit well before it seemed to. But it just tasted like a standard oolong that has grassier, greener notes than some. Tasty, but not repurchasing considering the price.

I really enjoyed this tea – it definitely has a sweet and floral scent and taste that I enjoy from this kind of oolong. However, it can’t receive a perfect rating from me because I have enjoyed similar teas that I found to be a bit higher quality for the same price. That said, I do wholeheartedly recommend giving it a try – very enjoyable!

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
