This tea is a lighter oolong that verges on green tea, but has a nice creamy flavor and pairs well with pineapple. I tried this iced as well and it was very refreshing.

Flavors: Cream, Grass, Pineapple

Thanks Kimquat for the sample! Honestly, was a littttle scared of the name.

Smells like a strong citrus followed by black tea. It reminds me of an english breakfast, pekoe, or earl grey tea. The sip is strong with a bit of astringency at the end, but a buttery smoothness in the front and clean citrus taste in the middle. This almost reminds me of eating a nice slice of citrus pound cake in the morning.

Flavors: Butter, Citrus, Cookie

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Hi hapatite,

Thanks for the review. If you still have some left, I would recommend letting the water cool a little below boiling (around 205) and then let it brew for only 1-2 minutes and let me know what you think. Hopefully it will taste a little more floral and sweet this way

Thanks!

Thanks for the note! Sadly, I only had enough to make one cup.

The first smell I get when about to sip this tea reminds me of trail mix with dried, juicy fruit. The taste itself is more mild and clean. The taste opens with guava and then leads into the white peony. The aftertaste is a mix of strawberry and guava bouncing back and forth and finishing with strawberry.

Flavors: Guava, Strawberry

drank Jasmine Rose by Raizana

I don’t know too much about this tea because it’s no longer listed on their website.

I wanted something after dinner to relax with but not to wake me up too much.

The tea smells sweet, opening up with jasmine and ending with a hint if rose and more sweetness. The taste is clean, grassy, sweet, and flowery. It is a bit watery, but the floral taste is not too strong to be off-putting.

Thank you for the sample Stephanie! We picked this up from DFT at the Coffee & Tea Festival in NYC.

The dried leaves remind me of my childhood, bringing me back to breakfasts filled with bowls of Fruit Loops cereal.

The scent of the brewed tea is more mild with citrus up front and mineral at the end. This tea is perfectly smooth and has absolutely no astringency to it. By far one of the best earl grey teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Fruity, Jasmine, Mineral
