This tea ferments to make a distinctively floral kombucha. Tempered nicely by the subtle tang of the ferment, the brew is supremely drinkable.

I really like floral black teas, so I’m not surprised I really like this. The lavender and blue cornflower dominate for me, in a very good way.

The colour of the steeped tea is such a beautiful pale gold: the first sign that this is no ordinary green tea.

No. 93, Feng Ling Ming Ye makes sense of how highly prized good tea has been in Asian history. This tea is glorious: smooth, so smooth. The most delicate vegetal butter. I detect an ever so slight bit of coconut here. Perhaps that is the sesame hint mentioned though my taste buds are taking it coconut way.

Thank you, Sil, for sharing this with me. This tea is making this day infinitely better.

At this moment, it is hailing. Yes. I heard a rush outside, as if it began to ran, but nope, it is hail. Like a snowstorm, but the hail bits are bouncing off every surface. In May.

No global warming here.

Glad you enjoyed it.

And still enjoying.

This tea tricked me because I thought it was an oolong (judging by appearance alone). Lol, I should have read the description.

For a green tea, it is a good one. It tastes very crisp— like fresh cut grass almost. It is vegetal and the slightest bit sweet.

SMOKEY. This tea reminds me of seaweed, in a good way. It’s savory, not sweet. It reminds me of the dried seaweed used to wrap sushi. I can’t tell you the individual notes, but this tea can sing.

I opened this one today – my present for getting my cupboard weight down more than anticipated in March. Let me tell you the dry leaf on this one is amaaazeballs. I made my other half smell this one and he immediately said chocolate., instead of saying “dirt” like he always does. I wish the brewed version of the tea was as chocolatey as the dry leaf – instead it turns into a VERY pleasant more typical yunnan golden bud. That’s not to say it was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable, just lacking the intensity of the chocolate aroma of the dry leaf. :)

Another tea i’m finishing up this morning. REALLY sad to see this one go – especially as i didn’t get a chance to compare it against teavivre’s keemun. If i ever have an opportunity, i’ll be picking up more of this one.

Almost through this one, especially if i set aside a little for Terri and Dexter…and that’s a sad thing. I really enjoy this one from Bellocq – though in fairness, i didn’t try it against my other favourite from teavivre, so there’s a chance the other is just as good.

bumping the rating up on this one a little as i think it’s one of my favourites from bellocq. I can’t be bothered remembering prices at the moment, but i think? it’s worth the price if memory serves. Had this earlier in the week as it’s been insane at work these days and i needed a great kick off to the morning. I think work might start slowing down by like december? ugh.
