It’s been so long since I’ve had the opportunity to just sit down and drink some REAL tea. This is real tea. Last time I drank this I got waterlogged before the leaves ran out of flavor. A fuzzy dian hong is something that just needs to be in the cupboard at all times. It’s so delicious.

I just had a revelation.
This would be really tasty mixed with my Art of Tea Cinnamon Fig.
Eh, this one smelled way better than it ever tasted, unfortunately. I’d rather have a different chocolate tea, so not too sad that it’s gone.
This is an interesting blend.
It’s fruity & chai like. It’s a much different chai than what I’m used to. It was a bit light on flavour despite my amount of leaves I use. You definitely get the berry flavours out front, followed by the muted chai spices.
Overall though a nice fruity, spicy blend.
Received this one as a sample with my order.
It’s very lemony smelling, taste wise that lemon doesn’t come off nearly as strong. It’s slightly lemony & black tea tasting. It’s an alright tea, nothing special.
I was ok with this one until I got the cigarette after taste. Ick.
I got this as an extra sample with my recent order (they sent me 2 new pu-erh samples).
It smells soooo delicious, spicy, maple goodness!
The taste oh so divine. Probably the YUMMIEST chai I have ever had. The addition of maple makes it near perfection. This would benefit greatly from some added pure Canadian maple syrup.
I’ve drank this a few more times. I don’t think it’s as good as my first note indicates. It is warm and soothing, but I don’t think the chai spices are blended to my taste. I think it’s too heavy on the cinnamon. Others have said too much clove, I didn’t find that. To each their own, but this isn’t the best chai blend I’ve had.
Edit: I had the last of this iced today. Wow, I really like it cold. I added some sweetener and milk to do a faux iced chai latte. It’s still a little heavy on the cinnamon for my tastes, but much better cold. I’ve bumped the rating up a bit to reflect this.
This isn’t my favorite. It’s OK, but I’m not really getting Tiramasue. I’m not even really sure what it tastes like. Some chocolate, some sweet, not really getting the coffee. I’ll drink what I have but wouldn’t order it again.
Sipdown! 797. This tastes a bit funky tonight… I think it’s due to the baggie-storage. Still has the tasty bakey notes, but almost a bit of a stale-ish flavour. Sigh. Oh well. I’d still order this again, just be a bit more careful in terms of storage.
okay, honestly, the first time i tried this tea it fell very flat and i was unimpressed. however, i figured i would give it another go seeing as it’s sitting in my cupboard.
tealux’s lychee raspberry is brilliant… but i’m afraid that my second go round with their lychee peach has not improved my opinion.
i love lychee and peach,but i taste neither in this blend. what i do taste is a creamy tobacco flavour. not like the smell of expensive pipe tobacco which can be nice, but something more acrid.
not more than a marginal grade from me…
A very fine, good tasting gyokuro. Smells awesome.
Another new tea! One I’ve been wanting to try for a while. A Japanese oolong… intriguing!
So I really had no idea what to expect with this tea. Some sort of oolongy flavour, obviously, but that’s about it. However, this tea is absolutely delicious. The aroma is light and sweet, and so is the flavour. Lightly caramelly, a bit oolongy… enough that I would probably describe it as an oolong in a blind taste test, anyway. No astringency whatsoever, just very smooth. It’s also not particularly floral.
What’s bugging me the most about this tea is that it seems quite familiar, but I have no idea what it’s reminding me of. My best guess, based honestly entirely on memory, is that it’s like Butiki’s Sparrow Tongue Oolong. I suppose the best way to test out that theory would be to make Sil try a cup of it :D Anyways, this is pretty freaking tasty, and I’m very happy to have at least a few more cups left in this sample packet. Indigobloom – I think you picked some of this up too, and I’m kind of glad we didn’t split a packet! More for me!
Additional infusions to come :)
ETA: Second infusion, with the same parameters, is pretty good, but doesn’t beat the first. A bit more tea flavour, perhaps, but some of the delicious sweetness is gone.
Oh wow this is a strong tea.
I think I like the English Breakfast my mom got be a bit better. And the Irish Breakfast from Steam.
Ahh well. This is still a good pick me up in the.. technically it’s still morning. :)

Another one from SIL
I must say I am really in LOVE with Shanti’s Maple offerings but this is darned tasty, too! It’s not as strong with the maple but the Russian Caravan likeness – the Souchong – is pretty delightful! It’s done RIGHT. It has a good amount of smoke without it being obnoxious! YAY! Probably one of my faves from Tealuxe so far!
