drank Pouchong by Adagio Teas
14 tasting notes

This is a greener oolong with a light and buttery flavor. It’s smooth, lightly floral and a little bit nutty. On the second steeping a slightly vegetal taste started to emerge, which became even stronger with the third steeping. I will purchase this one again.

Wow, I really love this stuff; it really satisfies my chocolate cravings. However, don’t expect it to be sweet tasing, as it’s more of a rich chocolate flavor, instead. It’s important to use boiling water and let it steep for 10 minutes or more, in order to get that rich decadent flavor. Also, make sure to use 1 serving for every 6 ounces, if not then it will not be rich enough. Sometimes, I prefer to add a little half and half to really get that comforting dessert like creaminess.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Silver Needle Premium by Rishi Tea
14 tasting notes

Rishi’s Silver Needle has a light delicate flavor. It tastes a bit like sweet hay and baked bread flavor, but is very smooth and not at all bitter. I believe that this would make an excellent tea for someone who is sick or just feeling under the weather.

drank Jasmine Pearl by Rishi Tea
14 tasting notes

This teas has is a very pleasant and delicate flavor. The scent of the jasmine is quite strong, but not at all overwhelming. Jasmine dominates the green tea, but in a pleasant way. It leaves the palate feeling hydrated and would make a excellent summer tea. I find it very soothing and relaxing after a tedious day.

Profile

Bio

Tea has always been my favorite beverage, even though I did get addicted to the buzz from the coffee high. This became more true as good quality coffee became easier to come by, while tea for the most part was regulated to the crushed bag varieties. So, even though I preferred the flavor of tea, I would consume a couple of cups of coffe every morning and reserved tea for the weekends. Fortunately, I found loose leaf teas at Whole Foods and discovered the taste and freshness of whole leaf teas. My favorites tend to be a Sencha and Assam.
