This is a good everyday oolong for me. It is definitely fruity combined with a mineraly taste, and it holds up well to multiple steepings. Oolong is my favorite tea to have unflavored, and I am glad to have found this one for my day to day oolong fix!

Holy fish! This doesn’t smell like much of anything dry, but upon brewing it smells very fishy. But then you sip it, and there is a bit of an aquatic note, but it isn’t nearly as fishy as it smells unless you are taking a huge whiff while sipping. It is less nuanced than many others I have tried. Good, but not great.

This is very tasty, but where is the tea? I see it in the teaspoon I used, but it seems to be very much overpowered by the spices. They are tasty though. I taste some pumpkin, and cinnamon, and a bit of chocolate and some nutmeg. I think it succeeds at pumpkin spice without being too pumpkin-y.

I wanted to love this a bit more than I do. I like the tea base, and its characteristic toasty nutty flavor. There is definitely some marshmallow flavor, but not enough for me!

I thought this was a decent tea. It tastes like black tea and definitely does have a creamy flavor to it. On it’s own, it is unimpressive to me, but I bet it is extremely complimentary in blends as the cream flavor doesn’t taste too artificial or overwhelming but it is still present.

I enjoyed this a lot. I steeped it three times, and each time it did not become bitter. The jasmine is present but not overwhelming, and has a nice green crispness to it that most greens have to me. I will definitely have to check out more by this brand for my teabag needs!

I was less than impressed with this one. Very orangey, which was nice, but completely lacking on the spice! It had great potential but fell very flat, even for a teabag.

I found this tea to be rather plain. It tastes like very typical green tea to me, though errs on the side of seaweed-y rather than nutty or anything. It holds up to 3-4 steeps pretty well. But compared to many others, it seems to lack some complexity to me.

I am a 29 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

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!
