807 Tasting Notes
Wow I am the first to review this.
Well when I ordered my sample it was sort of a quick decision – I was ordering teas for someone else from upton and decided to get a few I had not tried before for myself. This one caught my eye however I had not previously looked it up here on Steepster.
When I opened the package and poured out some of the leaf I was like WHAT THE????
Tiny little grounds like coffee.
It was like I opened up a bag of fannings from some cruddy tea bag.
Anyway … I brewed it.
A nice malty aroma, slightly sweet fruity flavor, lightly floral.
Interesting cleansing flavor of spring water.
I will play with this one some more but I like it!
I mean I would not have expected such great tasting tea from this “leaf”.
It is coming time soon to order more of this perma stash tea.
Always my go to tea in the morning when I don’t feel like trying something new.
Its perfection. Dependable. Delicious.
I can feel some sickness coming on … once I am fully awake I am going to switch to some green tea to combat whatever is trying to take over me.
Thank you Tea from Taiwan for this lovely sample.
Its not my all time favorite oolong but it is quite lovely.
A good beginner oolong perhaps or more suited for those who appreciate a lighter oolong.
It has a lightly milky flavor, a slight floral note, very light on the buttery aspect.
There is a nice refreshing floral after taste.
I can’t wait to try the other two samples.
Look for the review on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on November 15th.
Mmmmm I needed to open something new I had been holding back in my stash for inspiration. Needed a pure unadulterated tea. This is an absolutely stunning oolong!
Fresh, sweet, refreshing, delicious notes.
Going to go do a full review for sororitea sisters now.
I love The Mountain Tea Company – everything from them this far has been excellent.
Wow! I was so confused in the beginning of this cup but found myself IN LOVE!

I just want to say thank you to Invader Zim for sending me this GENEROUS sample!
I would not NEED to order more but I do want to get some so I can have the tin for it to have a deserving home!
I love the tart lemon (not sour) and the grassy flavor for the floral notes to rest on.
There is a shy sweetness about this tea that is NOT cloying at all.
Its so perfect!

This is a great young pu’er.
I feel it could mature more but a great starting point with notes of leather and berry.
There is also a buttered toast element growing here.
A great starter Shu!
A huge HUGE thank you to Invader Zim for sending me a surprise box of tea for some teas I had sent to her previously. It was totally unexpected as I asked for nothing – practically demanded nothing in return! What a lovely surprise today in the mail!
I do not think I have ever had a tea from Spice and Tea Exchange so this is new for me and I am quite enjoying it!
A nice pu-erh base with some wonderful notes and of course peppermint and chai spices.
I am not even minding the licorice note!
I am going to play with this tea a bit and do a review on http://sororiteasisters.com/
Thank you Invader Zim :) Happy dance.
Thank you Cedes for this sample!!
Its pretty good but it won’t make it to my David’s Tea ORDER list.
Its just alright. I think Root Beer would be a better fitting name as the FLOAT aspect really is not there for me.
Its interesting but not interesting ENOUGH.
Still happy I got to try it! :)

This is a highly interesting cup.
There is a nice floral note, and a honey juice flavor if juice were made from honey I imagine it would taste like this. Its not sappy sweet though, clearly, but it has such a nice honey nectar flavor that is light and bursts in the mouth with juiciness.
There is a deep woods like note in this cup, sometimes I think I get a little cinnamon but as soon as I taste it its gone so Im not sure lol.
This is young and has so much more it can unfold for us.
If I had better storage I would grab some and put it away for much later.
I don’t trust my knowledge level or ability to sustain the quality of this tea for that long however.
This is a really easy pu’erh to drink and I feel equally good for both beginners and those who appreciate a fine pu’erh.
