This tea is really not as good as I remember from years ago. Possibly that is in part because the tea I have is a few years old (though well-stored). It has a marked minerality, and is a bit astringent and quite drying in texture. I think my initial favourable impression of it was probably due in part to its being the first loose leaf oolong I ever tried, about a decade ago now. Having tried many good oolongs since then, it no longer seems as delicious.

#drinkwhatyouown January spot 20/25
Tuesday 2/9 So from Starbucks when you used to get free refills on brewed coffee/tea while in house I’d sit around in Starbucks and get “refills” of teabags and just put them in my purse as I would continue drink whatever tea/beverages I had with me. Anyway, this was 2 teabags best by almost 4 years ago, brewed lukewarm and plain.

Anise was the first thing I smelled and tasted in this first steep. There is a sweet cinnamon note lingering too. Can’t taste any of the bitter, smoky mate, and the clove/cardamom you’d expect from a chai is muted as well. This is a nice warming cinnamon, licorice chai. A nice choice for a tea advent!
I seem to be behind on my advent, my excuse is that I was traveling this week. This is strawberry with a slight edge. If it had a salty taste I’d say it was a margarita, but this is sweet like a a strawberry pop tart. Festive for this time of year, I could see this in the punch bowl at an office Christmas party. If I still worked in an office, or we could still have Christmas parties.
This became my favorite white tea for some time due to the amazing floral notes. But since the strong floral notes were so unique, it was only a “sometimes” tea for when I was in the mood for those flavors. I was sad when Teavana discontinued it, and have never found a suitable replacement since.
This was likely the tea blend that got me into loose leaf tea over a decade ago. Teavana often had this as a sample tea, and while I’m not a huge fan of either of the individual teas alone, they blend perfectly. As someone without a sweet tooth, it’s just sweet enough, and can be enhanced with some rock sugar if you like. Very refreshing for a hot tea, and was my staple blend for many years.
