Although technically not a tea, this is my favorite fruit blend I have had. It is a bit sour, but pleasantly so. You can taste the cherry, but I don’t particularly taste the vanilla. If you add a lime, it increases the the score from 90 to 95….Simply amazing!
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Herbs, Pleasantly Sour
Ku Cha creates different chai blends for each season. This one I believe is their house chai for the autumn. An excellent spicy chai blend. Amazing shelf life. Great with a splash of almond milk.
Flavors: Caramel, Cardamon, Chestnut, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Spicy, Vanilla
Love this tea – hot or iced. Fruity and refreshing. Like a breath of fresh air on a warm, breezy summer day. Good shelf life for premium loose leaf green tea. Can be re-steeped but best on the first try.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Dried Fruit, Frosting, Jam, Pastries, Strawberry, Winter Honey
One of my all-time favorite teas. Good in morning, noon or night. Makes an excellent dessert tea; is great with milk, sugar, or by itself. Strong, aromatic vanilla and bourbon flavors. I drink a lot more of this tea during autumn. Great shelf life.
Flavors: Brandy, Brown Sugar, Cherry Wood, Creamy, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla
My allergies this past spring were outrageous. Got this tea and drink it even when I’m not feeling inflammation in my sinuses. Very relaxing and slightly medicinal in flavor. Great shelf life. Can be steeped multiple times. Suggest a double walled glass to watch the flowers expand.
Flavors: Dandelion, Honey, Lemongrass, Pepper
Was looking for a grassy green and stumbled on Bancha. Is a good afternoon tea; rouses the senses. Slightly toasty for a green, but is very relaxing. Decent shelf life for premium loose leaf. Can be steeped multiple times.
Flavors: Sweet, warm grass
Think of bight, sunny, breezy days. This tea is like a citrus breeze in your mouth. Originally bought this tea to make sun tea. Makes an excellent iced tea or ice cubes for a citrusy iced green tea. Short shelf life, but is expected of premium quality white tea. Beautiful color when steeped.
Not a huge fan of jasmine teas as a general rule but was pleasantly surprised by how light of a taste the leaves produced. Can steep multiple times, best on second once the pearls are fully unravelled. Is rather expensive, but what kind of jasmine pearl loose leaf is inexpensive? Stores well for a green tea.
Flavors: Grass, Jasmine
Probably my most favorite green tea thus far.
Grassy, bright. When steeped produces a neon green color. Premium quality loose leaf. Can steep multiple times. Drank this tea like it was going out of style, which is good because it has a shorter shelf life.
Flavors: Freshly Cut Grass
I’m trying to make some progress on drinking some of my tea collection. I bought myself some special teas to celebrate graduating from college last Friday and my shelves are on the verge of exploding. I have so many teas to drink! Many of them aren’t even opened, but are just waiting until I drink a bit more and make room. I have a little bit of this Milk Oolong sitting around and it would be nice to finish it off sometime soon.
The scent of this tea is buttery, green and floral. It smells like a typical milk oolong, if I am to be honest. Sipping… oh, I like this one. It’s sweet, buttery and very smooth. I like how the floral notes are toned down a little so the buttery character can take center stage. This one is delicious! It lacks some of the peachy notes that I can sometimes get from other milk oolongs, but I am loving the simplicity of this one. The sweetness is so very nice.
Well, now I’ve gulped down this cup and find myself wanting to save what leaf I have left. It’s always a nice surprise when you aren’t expecting to enjoy a tea that much and end up loving it instead. Mmm.
Ah once trahd this tea on a plane trip to Boston. Ah used bawlin’ water an’ just let it sit in mah travel jar. It got too bittah for meh. So terday, Ah be trahin’ it again. Terday, Ah be usin’ bawlin’ water again, but Ah be controlin’ dat durr dose and steep tahm.
Dose – 1tbsp/6fl/oz
Steepin Tahm – 1st, Ah give dem leaves a quick rinse so Ah cud let dem open up. After dat, Ah give a 20sec steep tahm. After dat, Ah pour out the brew after 5 seconds or less, and Ah gradually add tahm after each steep as needed.
1st brew — milky taste, heavy body, notes of cinnamon cuz ah accidently stored it for a few months in a cinnamon bark container. Surprisingly delicious.
Ope, Ah ran outta tahm, Ah’ll get to tasting notes for doze udder steepin’s latah.
Happy tea drinkin’ ter y’all!

This jar of looseleaf had been so woefully neglected I figured it wouldn’t be good for much but iced tea. First time I’d ever tried sun tea with looseleaf, but it worked pretty well—steep, then strain. Made a nice, deep drink with that wet burlap/grainy flavor typical of Keemuns.
Azzrian’s review of molasses-y Sinjahara yesterday inspired me, so I heated some of the cold brew and added a half-teaspoon of molasses to it. Tasted a little stewed after all the mistreatment, but in a good way. Keemun and molasses are a good pairing if you need a stick-to-your ribby cup.
Not just teaser sprinkles that make the sidewalk sweaty, rain with a little friendly thunder that lasted off and on last night. (I can just hear my mom singing “Showers of Blessing” right now :)
I always associate Keemuns with rainy days, and this was the first one I put my hand on. It’s extremely light for a keemun—the stereotypical Keemun dark, wet burlap taste is barely detectible. This morning, it was compounded by my rush to get it steeped so I could sit outside and smell the dampness. This one needs a full 4 or 5 minutes to squeeze out its whole personality.
Still and all, it’s a lovely morning. Hope some showers of blessing fall wherever you are.
