Going back to my first love but this time, I mix in a little bit of Sadaf’s Special Blend with Cardamon. A delicious combo … <3

drank Milk Oolong by American Tea Room

My cousin gave me sample of this tea and I’m pretty happy with it. It’s a very sweet smelling tea that has a buttery taste and a subtle sweetness to it. I did three steepings of this tea and by the third, the tea definitely transformed so it lingers on my tongue longer. I need to buy some more…

I’ve always wanted to try a Milk Oolong, which ones do you recommend? I’ve noticed you’ve tried several so you must enjoy it quite a bit. :))

I would recommend trying either the American Tea Room or DavidsTea for Milk Oolong. I’ve been going through other brands and I’m a little disappointed at the lack of boldness in my Milk Oolong.

ScottTeaMan

So the ones you recommend are bolder, more to your liking? I’ve been avoiding my teas bc I’ve needed to find my water filters, and finally I’ll be posting reviews today! I’ve got a new Harney order that’s been waiting for me.:)) They have a Blue Lavender that I had to try. I really got it bc you said sometimes lavender can be soapy….right? Well, I just had to see if I could understand what you meant. Plus, that lavender tea on their site looked so good. The first tea from my H & S order reviewed will be Hao Ya B……..look for it. :))

Anna Vu

Oh! If that’s the case, I can send you a sample of this Milk/Silken Oolong I recently bought this is a bit more “mellow”. Send me a PM if you’re interested! :)

It’s a very rainy day, fitting for some hot tea.

I’m a little sick today so I decided to break into my pu’erh and was quite happy at the slight smokiness and earth tones in this tea. I’m sure there are better Pu’erh out there but I’m quite enjoying this blend.

Finally digging into the Oolong that I got from my Select membership. I warmed up my tea cup and also did a quick brew before dumping it. I left my tea at the bottom of my cup cause I wanted to watch it grow and I’m super happy with the tea. I didn’t add too many tea leaves to my cup so it’s pretty subtle but I like the soft roasted hints and the slight sweet tones. I think I need to add more tea leaves to get that smoky flavor.

I just bought this last week. I gave it a higher score. I love the Fujian teas.

ScottTeaMan

I bought their Da Hong Pao and liked it alot, but I’d have to really think about this tea before I posted a review. I’d probably give it an 80 to 85. :))

Charles Thomas Draper

The Wuyi Cassia is real nice….

Anna Vu

It’s always hard to score these teas! I just move it somewhere that seems sort of positive and apparently, it’s semi-low. Odd. But I agree, it deserves a bit higher of a score than the one I gave it. I’m just a rookie when it comes to scoring.

ScottTeaMan

I usually get 4 good steeps from a decent Da Hong Pao. Try it with this tea, it seems to work pretty well. The second and third cups are always the best. :)

In the making of this cup, I misplaced my spoon (thus I’m using a fork for stirring purposes and tea bag fishing) and managed to burn myself on my kettle. However, the morning is still awesome since my cup of tea came out perfectly.
