drank Quilan Oolong by White Lion
807 tasting notes

I just can NOT top Kashap’s review! Its spot on!
I love this oolong! I too am not always fond of Wuyi – I like it but this is the first one I can recall that has really WOWd me!!
The aroma – wow – when I had that first whiff of this tea before sipping I instantly thought of Burnt Marshmallows! Now I indeed do love my marshmallows burnt till they are pitch black as long as there is still yummy melting marshmallow inside. This was the aroma! There was that smokiness to it that really had me.

I have had a long dang day and this is hitting the spot!

To top it off I started my day with an excellent tea from another company – already reviewed – then I had another tea from THIS company which I have yet to review but soon will. I just don’t think I am alert enough to give either of these teas from White Lion justice right now.

I will say this. I really can’t afford another tea order right now and have a lot of expenses coming up, and I have been wanting to place an order with a favorite company for ages now BUT I regret, regret, regret, NOT getting more than a sample of this AND their Lemon Souffle!

An order is being placed!
Plus I am grabbing a sample vanilla dolce and calypso!

Em

Now I must get some of this. You had me at marshmallow.

Azzrian

LOL :) If you make an order with them be sure to get at least a sample of the Lemon Souffle!

Em

Thanks for the tip! I’ll add it to my shopping list for when I have money to throw at tea.

Sil

Oh man…another tea company….lol must resist…just need to get through another week…

Kashyap

thanks for the sweet kudos dear Azzrian…that means a lot…blushes

Azzrian

Haha your welcome but seriously your review was intimidating in a good way!
Also I wish we could find photos for this company’s tea – their site won’t let me steal them! Bah!

Azzrian

I SUPPOSE I could take some of what I have / get but you know it won’t look as good. Oh maybe I will post the ones of the box I posted earlier in the threads. Duah

Kashyap

I have pics that I took but I couldn’t post them on here unless I ‘recreated’ the tea

Azzrian

I just slapped that one I took earlier up for now. Maybe they will get some photos to us if they see more reviews :)

Veronica

I just looked at White Lion’s site, and wow! It looks beautiful. Between that and your reviews I am going to be cash poor but tea rich. ;-)

Azzrian

Haha sorry about that :) I am sitting here staring at my order ready to hit the button …. SIGH I need to go organize the tea I have now! lol

jessiwrites

Ahhhhh, I can’t place an order from Canada? Sigh.

Azzrian

Nooooooooo!!!!!

Sil

jessi – if i ever get around to placing an order with them I’ll try to remember to drop you a line. We could do a swap as i have a friend who transports my tea across the border every weekend lol

jessiwrites

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
