Pleasant if a little shallow. Better than some cooked puerh I’ve had that border on fish market pungency. A great introductory shu puerh; earthy, cooling, smooth though not as complex as I want it to be.

How is this? I’m suspicious since Pu Erh is supposed to be Chinese…

I can’t wait to my sampleset arrives!

Samplers are so much fun! More companies have to jump on board and start producing sampler packs.

Rijje

…every company should have samplers (and cute sampler tins!)

Ricky

Instead of plastic / foil baggies?

Yeah, only company that packs sampler tins I can think of is Adagio.

Cofftea

Actually as a person who has almost exclusively sample sizes (2oz and smaller), while cute is attractive, I’d rather have resealable opaque bags. Those tins are just too cumbersome to store when you have as many as I do! lol. But then again most people probably don’t have as many as I do lol.

I should just sign off Steepster until I can get to my Canton sampler pack. (It’s sitting on my office desk while I’m away.) The tea-envy is getting to me.

Sweet and delicate almost a sugary finish…all other notes seem to still apply from my previous post

Okay…it’s been a HELLISH Day! So…in short with more reviews later…
DRY smells like fresh cut zucchini and once infused smells like a mellow green or white tea. Taste is REALLY yummy…

COOL (eventho I am drinking HOT), Cucumber-like, nutty, crisp, clean, delightful!!!!

Cofftea

Cucumber and nutty… what an odd combo!

TeaEqualsBliss

Odd is GOOD

LOL

Floral and honey notes, certainly! But what I also find interesting about this is…the scent. The scent reminds me of being out in nature…like in the middle of the woods or even on a beach…those familiar nature-smells! Then when you taste it…it’s not really what you expect…altho even more pleasant. There is a soothing and lingering yummy aftertaste, too!

Bai Lin Gong Fu black tea won the top prize of Three Star Gold. Only 91 products out of over 6,000 entries achieved three stars!!!!

I received a nice sample size of this today and must say it is much different that I remember it! I know I liked it before but WOW! This time around it is even better!

Right out of the package the aroma smacks you in the face!!! I like a loud tea! BUT…the smell was much different that I remember and unlike anything I have ever smelled! GET READY FOR THIS!!!!! The smell of this reminds me of Ravioli! A bready/Tomato type smell and I just LOVE it!!! Truly unique!

The taste is also much different…and I like that! It’s a little cakey but creamy!!! It’s a full and fairly bold RED – or Black tea taste – at the beginning and leads you into a lovely mellow aftertaste. The aftertaste encourages you to sip more!

I really like this!

Enjoyable. Strong honey notes. I prefer Canton Tea Co’s Magnolia Blossom Dan Cong, however, this tea may be more accessible.

Simply exquisite. Sweet, with a bit of a tingly “shocker” in the finish. I am overwhelmed by this tea.

Creamy, Tangy, and a little semi-sweet grassy type taste. Light and Clean. Very nice!

Not as rich as I would like to be, but decent so far. Will try more.

Cofftea

A Vietnamese Pu Erh? Odd.

Lainie Petersen

It is odd. Good for my tummy, though.

Cofftea

The odd intrigues me and I’d normally be on that like white on rice (Asian pun intented lol), but I’m not a shu fan.

Lainie Petersen

I can drink either shu or sheng, but find that shu is really good at calming a tummyache.

drank Jasmine Pearls by Canton Tea Co
132 tasting notes

I received this lovely tea from TeaEqualsBliss; I was really excited to try it since I am a jasmine pearl lover. I used 1 tsp of pearls per 8oz of water and steeped for about 3mins and then let cool for about 15mins before I enjoyed my cup. The jasmine flavoring was authentic tasting and sweet, the silver needles made for a very clean, yet very slightly grassy tasting tea. Very well done and I can’t wait to try a second cup blended with a peach white tea, I have a feeling that with be DELISH with these pearls!

Even more delicious in the second steeping of the same leaves.

The smell and taste of the Jasmine was authentic, and not artificial. The aroma of the tea was of Jasmine flowers, sweet and soft, calming me down and reminding me of a sleepy time tea. The color of the liquor was very light, as expected from the white tea leaves. The white tea is tasty, I could taste the creaminess and sweetness from the Silver Needle tea. I steeped this tea 4 times, and by the 4th steep, the Jasmine had slowly gone away, but the Silver Needle was still as tasty as the first steep. In addition to the Silver Needle flavors, the taste has sweet finish, leaving the Jasmine flower smell in the aroma and the sweetness from the Jasmine in the cup. I really enjoy this tea, and imagine that it would be amazing iced!
