This is fantastic! I just got it today and had to open it right up!!! It’s NOT your stereotypical Darjeeling and that’s what I like about it! It’s rich but not overly bold…I would say medium bold. It’s quite smooth and even for a darjeeling and I think that’s very special! I really REALLY like this!!!!

I tried this tea with reluctance, thinking that almond teas are often overpowering and much too potent. However, I was more than satisfied with this tea. If you’re in the mood for a little sweetness, a generous amount of honey makes this a great after-dinner wind down tea. I am definitely adding this to my tea arsenal for when company is over. Highly recommended.

Despite having a previous bias rooting from my long blooming love affair with rooibos teas, I have to say this tea blew all others out of the water. The blend of flavors complemented the rooibos, rather than suffocating it as I have experienced in other blends. From the aroma of the leaves I developed a high expectation of what the steeped tea would taste like and I must say it more than delivered. Highly recommended.

This has got to be my favorite Rooibos blend. I’m not exactly the biggest fan of almonds, however when mixed with this fine Rooibos tea and honey, it creates the perfect taste! Out of this world!

This tea is absolutely stunning! As was previously mentioned, it has an extremely smooth taste. I absolutely love drinking Rooiboses with honey, and this one is no exception. Smooth & sweet taste!

Enjoying a cup of this tea this evening. I am experiencing more of a lovely honey undertone this time around. It starts out kind of woody with hints of smoke, and ends with sweetness. YUM!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This Oolong is really good. Honey-esque flavors along with a peachy taste in the background. There is a slight floral note to this as well. I really like this one – and it’s great iced too!

Very nice! I really like this tisane. It has a deliciously fruity, floral taste that is light and relaxing.

The lavender is so nice here and I like the pairing of the lavender and the rose. They compliment each other very well. The fruit is sweet and a little tart, but not too much. A very pleasant tisane!

I have heard wonderful things about this one from East Pacific and have been wanting to try it and because of LiberTEAs I was able to! YAY! Thanks so much!

Dry – This smells like a Mystery Berry of some sort – maybe a gentle blueberry, a jasmine and other flower mix, and white tea.

Post infusion it really only smells like a light jasmine white tea.

It’s near clear in color.

The taste starts off really crisp and clean and then the jasmine SCREAMS “hello” and it finishes somewhere in between. It does leave a little bit of a jasmine aftertaste tho…much like a jasmine flavored green tea would. Regardless this is a fine jasmine-white! A pure delight!

Increasing rating! I really like this! A little more malty-smooth than I remember.

Backlogging a cup! Also DH had a cup and said he really liked this one – said it was bold and he always adds sugar to his teas when he does have tea that is…

I am incredibly fond of jasmine green teas, but, I think I enjoy jasmine white teas even more. The softer qualities of the white tea seem to bring out the softer, gentler side of jasmine. Lovely!

This is so good. The white tea is delicate but I can taste the soft, slightly grassy notes. The jasmine is so dreamy!

2nd infusion…

WAY different than the 1st…

It’s darker in color post-infusion…a nice orange/honey-brown almost like a Sam Adams lighter color beer! It smells more woodsy and certainly tastes more woodsy than the first infusion. This time around there is a VERY slight peppery hint hiding underneath! BUT…it’s still sweet!

This one has me thinkin’ that is for sure!

This is a truly unique black and I don’t think I could compare it to any other tea I have ever had before.

DRY AROMA – it smells very new – very fresh – almost like when you buy a new jacket!
Post infusion aroma – almost smells like toast and maybe cocoa or something…it’s very hard to explain but it’s very different!
Color – is a lighter to light-medium brown…again, very unique

Taste -

Again, very hard to describe but I will try…

It almost tastes like a black tea and oolong blend/mix. It has ever-so-slight woodsy undertones and is fairly sweet. It has a lighter to light-medium black tea taste, I suppose!

This looks like it would be good for multiple infusions so I am going to try it!

I guess as an afterthought this does have a nice perfume type aroma to it as well – not floral – but something I would like a room to smell like, I guess!

Stay tuned for more notes on this one!!!

This one REALLY surprised me! I mean REALLY! This is the perfect level of tartness for me…AND it has a wonderful smoothness to it that I wasn’t expecting! This also has a comfortable amount of lavender in it that just shows it’s presence and stands in the corner without being too loud. The Blueberries, Raisins, and Currants are a juicy mix calmed down by the lavender and rose petals that almost give it a vanilla type smoothness!

On a level of 1 to 10 – 10 being the highest of shock value that I am enjoying this as much as I am – I want to say I’m at about a 9.

This is delightful!

This is a hearty Oolong, folks! A bit on the woodsy side than being on the sweet side but it works! Pretty good, indeed!

This smells like fresh cut wood with hints of cocoa powder. This has an interesting light-gold-brown type color to it. A Darjeeling Oolong…lovely. Light but lovely. Pleasant aftertaste. Not bad.

I like simple peony blends. I can drink Blue Mist every day.

One of the things that I absolutely adore about this tea (aside from it’s amazing flavor) is the aroma! As it brews (and now, as the cup sits here in front of me) the scent takes on the most delightful honey-esque scent. Delightful!

I wrote a full-length review for this tea which will publish this Friday on the SororiTea Sisters blog. In the meantime, please feel free to consult my previous tasting notes about this tea.

Randomly chose this from my home stash tonight and realized my SororiTEA Sister also had a cup of this as well! :) Ironic! LOL This is better than I remember it…I did infuse more loose leaf but for less time and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Amazing! I do love a good Yunnan – and this certainly fits the bill… to a TEA!

Pleasantly starchy with a sweet potato taste, hints of spice and earth and wood come and go throughout the sip. It finishes with a somewhat dry astringency.

A very fine Yunnan indeed!

ETA: I need to add a huge THANK YOU to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea! I really loved this – thank you so much!!!

Why I started my TEA DAY with a WHITE Tea – I will never know! LOL but this is pretty good still. A little astringent today but as it cools at room temperature it seems to fade away.
