Oh, boo. This harvest is a bit of a bummer. I’ve tried it a few times now, with a handful of different parameters and I just can’t get it to work all that well. It’s not bad, but compared with the previous harvest which has to be one of my favorite teas ever, it’s very disappointing. Where that was hefty, perfectly chocolatey and malty. This is insipid. With a terribly odd aftertaste. I’ll definitely try the next harvest, but fingers crossed it’s back to where it was before.

Removing this one from my wishlist…

Wow, fresh indeed! Unfortunately it’s more along the lines of fresh vegetation than fresh flowers as I had hoped. Probably not a bad tea, but one of the most vegetal teas I’ve ever smelled or tasted. Which is not at all to my taste. There might have been the tiniest hint of floral hiding out in there, but I spit out the one sip I took and am not interested in trying another. I’ll be sending the rest off to Amanda SoggyEnderman with hopes she’ll find vegetal notes more preferable than I do. It’s a huge bag though, so if anyone wants me to take out a sample for them let me know!

Flavors: Cut grass, Seaweed, Spinach, Vegetal

Mmm, I forgot how much I loved this one. Almost a sip down for me, I have just enough left for a bowl brew. I’ll have to add this to my re-purchase list though. This is one of my favorite Jin Xuans. Not the creamy floral type ( à la Green Terrace) I love so much, but the delicious fruity style. Lots of tropical fruit notes swimming in a custard. So so good. Not my everyday preference but I certainly like it enough to keep on hand for times I crave this style.

Tropical fruit swimming in custard? Sounds delicious!!

It’s really good! Tealyra is always having sales too, so it’s especially nice for the price.

And Canadian too. Especially of interest to Canadians now that our dollar is suffering so badly. Thanks for this!

Oh, god. This is truly awful. I usually stay away from Red Leaf’s fruity flavors, but I thought this would be okay as it’s also a cream flavor which Red Leaf positively excels at. Unfortunately I was very much mistaken. Not only did this taste absolutely nothing like strawberry or cream, it was so rancid smelling I threw away the tin without even attempting to clean it. Saving it wouldn’t be worth breathing in that awful odor.

Not the worst tea I’ve had from them (I’m looking at you watermelon matcha), but it has reaffirmed my decision to stay away from fruit flavors offered by Red Leaf.

You tried the flavors from 3 Leaf tea yet?

Oh wow, watermelon matcha sounds like the worst idea ever.

Stephanie, yes, I’ve really loved them so far. Their strawberry matcha mixed in soy milk tastes like a strawberry milkshake.

Sipdown! Although I probably shouldn’t count it as I picked up more… a lot more in Tealux/Tealyra’s Halloween sale. But It’s not here yet so I’m marking it down.

This tea is honestly so damn good. Brown sugary sweet with notes of sweet potato, strawberry, apricot and malt. It really shines gongfu, but western brewed it does just fine too. If you haven’t tried this one yet, I definitely recommend picking up a bit to try. It’s one of the best teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Apricot, Brown Sugar, Malt, Strawberry, Sweet Potatoes

Of course it still counts as a sipdown :-Þ
