I got a 100g bag of this tea (sorry, tisane) a couple of weeks ago and I have been drinking it constantly. It makes my mouth water, it is so delicious. It really is juicy! The cream aspect just adds that extra touch that calms the juicy, fruity mirabelle plum flavour. And I LOVE green rooibos, so that is the cherry on the top. I will rate it later, this computer won’t let me.
My first pu-erh, courtesy of a fantastic sampler sent to me by Angrboda!
…Okay, I totally see what everyone is talking about with the smell. There is definitely a delicate odor of cow barn here. (When people talked about “barnyard”, I was imagining something like the hay and leather scent of a riding stable, but no: this, my friends, is cows.) Weirdly, though, it tastes like it smells and it tastes good; I don’t know what to make of this! I am, so far, confused by pu-erh tea.
I did the first few steeps at near-boiling, under thirty seconds, and then had a few with cooler water and longer times. The tea didn’t get noticeably bitter, but the first few steeps were juicier, I think. The color was an utterly gorgeous red-gold!
So: I am intrigued enough to come back for more. We shall see!
Not that into flavoured teas, but I got this as a freebie with an order I placed (it’s the only one I’ve got left!). It actually went down quite well. Something about a warm spring afternoon, maybe. The strawberry smell is quite strong, but there’s a peppery bite at the back of the mouth (and in your nose). Quite compelling.
SIPDOWN! thank you kittylovestea for this one. I’m always intrigued by tea+ coffee blends since i do enjoy a nice cup of coffee every now and then. This isn’t exactly cakelike. there’s a hint of a creamy sort of taste going on, in addition to the clear coffee taste (likely from the coffee beans in this one). I don’t mind this one at all. It’s nothing i’d need to drink all the time but i certainly go for it now and then. :) thanks a bunch kitty!
These rings are so cute :) And they smell floral and gentle like a spring breeze.
Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with the same gentle floral and grassy scent as it’s raw form.
This tea is sweet, grassy, floral, vegetal and fresh. Flavour key words would be sweet pea, jasmine, grass, cabbage and peony.
It’s a nice novelty tea and the rings have fully opened up to show it’s long, needle pointed leaves.
A nice green tea with unique charm. :)
More Darjeeling please :)
This tea is bright green and dark green in colour with a sweet and floral jasmine scent. The leaves are mostly finely chopped for the most part. I can see a little bit of twig but very little and no marks or discolouration on the leaves.
Once steeped this tea is dusky yellow in colour with a sweet yet soft jasmine aroma. Not as strong as say Jasmine Pearls but strong enough to be fresh.
Flavour is gentle and sweet with minor astringency. It’s sweet but also slightly musky and perfumey so it still has that true Darjeeling feel about it. Not as sweet as some Jasmine teas can be but it’s sweet enough for me.
Overall it’s a nice Darjeeling green and a nice jasmine green so as a Jasmine Darjeeling it’s pretty darn tasty! Two happiness meters for the price of one can be filled thanks to this beauty :)
SIPDOWN! mwahahahahaha i feel like the count today! in any case exciting eventual and productive work and tea day today. Made some baby steps forward with someone who i find challenging to work with (she likely finds me the same way so no issues there haha); got some things off my plate, drank a bunch of tea and i’m one day closer to vacation! woot woot!
I have relaly enjoyed drinking this one so thank you bunches angrboda!
figured i might as well try this one again tonight after having the zen tea version last night. Ill stick to this version thanks! could be the same supplier for all i know but this version seems so much creamier and raspberrier for me. I’m really enjoying this as an end to the evening. I didn’t get as much tea drinking in, but what i’ve had tonight has been delicious!
Other from angrboda that I’m enjoying. Now if only my dashboard would behave! Th initial smell of this one had me a bit worried because behind the delicious aroma was a hint of something artificial. Turns out that my worries were unfounded because brewed, this is simply a delicious raspberry vanilla tea. Makes me think of raspberry creamsicles a little :) the icecream mixing with the raspberry…mmmmm
Thank you Kittylovestea for this sample.

This tea does not look like a white. the tealeaves are dark. Almost like they dried in the sun for to long.
The tea itself is powerfully fruity. I think ripe peaches? Kind of pleasant, i think it would be good as an iced tea.
Interesting to try something as odd as this :)
Thank you kittylovestea for this one! I totally didn’t steep this one for long enough tonight…it’s been a VERY long day and i’m semi out of it. Long story short i’m glad i have more of this to try again. I can tell this will be one that i enjoy quite a bunch from the small cup i had tonight. Just need to steep it for longer to bring out the flavours even more!
