Received this in a swap with mtchyg awhile back. I wrote down notes but then lost them until today, cleaning out my little nest in the living room. :)
This was a more natural coconut, not really a creamy coconut. This isn’t a stand out base but it’s not a bad tea overall. There is definitely coconut in it, pretty sure there was some coconut oil on top in my cup. Happy to have tried but it won’t replace Zhi’s coconut black in my cupboard.
This is actually one of the better flavored greens I’ve had. The tea is clean, fresh, and silky feeling. The Tangerine flavor is subtle but lingers very nicely on the back of the tongue. I’m really digging this tea tonight.
This is a decent enough tea. A nice peach scent but the flavor isn’t as pronounced as the smell. The ginger is minimal. The tea itself is not super high quality but is also not bitter. Middle of the road really. The saving grace is I was able to get 4 oz for around $5. I still am not sure I would buy this again. Too many teas out there that are better than this one.

Hooray, more caffeine-free! I found several interesting rooibos blends worth trying in the box, huzzah. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, and I’ve tried several different lemon dessert rooibos blends, but none of them has been quite right. So here’s another contender! The red rooibos is mixed with citrus peel and what I assume is lemon balm? Ah, I see it’s lemon myrtle. I admit to not knowing the difference. This tea has literally zero dry scent, ha ha. Poopy box, you stole it all! :P
The steeped tea, however, is quite fragrant and reminds me of lemon drop candies. This is quite nice! It’s definitely more of a refreshing lemon than a dessert one, but it’s not overly tart or sharp. It reminds me a bit of lemon candies but without the sugar. I don’t taste the rooibos base at all, which is a shame since I do actually like rooibos. There’s a little bit of an aftertaste issue because the flavoring is so strong, though. Which is a shame!

I’m so far behind in my logging. Yikes!
I got this from Lariel a while back (when?).
A nice China oolong with a strong scent of peach. Luckily it isn’t as overly peachy as it smells. Oolongs aren’t my favorite teas but I’m always ready to try them in case I find one I’m in love with.
Nice bright lemon flavor. Not a sour lemon. I taste the lemon myrtle most. I love, love, love lemon myrtle. Ever since we went to Australia I have had an obsession with lemon myrtle! Not sure if i taste the chiffon/pastry but it really doesn’t matter to me. :-)
Flavors: Lemon, Vanilla
This golden monkey is so good, especially considering the price comparative to other golden monkey teas. The dried tea smells fresh, almost like hot cornbread. the leaves are long and twisted with a lot of gold buds, and golden tea hair left behind in the tin. the brewed tea is dark gold, and smells very musky and a little chocolatey. the taste is like a good quality black tea without any bitterness, only a bold and rich taste. I was surprised by how unique it tastes, making it hard to pick words to describe it. i can say that I will keep my big tin full of this tea as long as presto carries it
great flavored green. the flavor is a little strong, making it hard to taste the green tea but still a great cup. be careful to use cooler (175) water and to steep for no more than 3 minutes, as it can and will get bitter. but when steeped correctly, a great tea for any time
Honestly, I love white peony. My friend had the red fruits white tea from presto and enjoyed it, so I figured why not try the black fruits? Well I steeped it with a little extra tea since whites are so subtle, but honestly, it still disappointed me. I tried different temps and times, but honestly it was just not that good. I’d rather buy some of the expensive white peony from the shop downtown than save a few bucks and drink this kinda flavored warm water.
