My first cake and it’s delicious. I was nervous to steep a cake, but it went well. Very similar to Maidens Ecstasy from Samovar. Dark, sweet and flavoursome but not overpowering. Very nice morning blend. First steep at 3 minutes, second just as good at 1.5 minutes.

Very clean, easy going down. Nice sweet linger. This one is a keeper.

I can’t say much and be different from Silk Road Tea’s own description of this tea. It seems quite delicate, yet strong enough to warrant being an every day tea. Sweet and traditionally grassy but it doesn’t overload you. Quite satisfying and very good for the mind when steeping and thinking of the buddhist connection.

A little heavier than many other Fujian teas I have had, but still light and green. Quite mixed flavours roll over the tongue as it passes, adding a complexity that can’t be ignored when rushing.

This is a pretty good daily tea. I can see me drinking a lot of this in the summer. It’s pretty cheap which is always good. Light, crisp and refreshing if not overly complex. I’m on cup 6 in the first half an hour.

I found it a little tough to judge how much to use, I think I went a little under the correct amount in the end, but still enjoyed it. I steeped for about 2.5 minutes the first time, nearly 4 the second and both were tasty. Light and crisp this is a really mellow every day tea. I could drink this all day long.

Certainly more enjoyable than the Pu Erh Dante from Adagio. It’s much smoother, less dense and more delicate. I’d imagine that this would appeal to a much wider group of tea drinkers.

Dark, rich and earthy. A not so delicate, but quite typical Pu erh.

Earthy, raw but smooth taste. Light orange in colour and pretty smooth.

Really enjoyed this, even with the rice. Didn’t think I would, but this has made me try more Japanese green teas as well as Chinese. Excellent daily tea.
