drank Golden Monkey by Teavana

This tea was recommended by the Teavana staff when I told them I liked black tea. I did tell them I wanted something on the strong side. By itself I am not a fan as I have not found a way to kill the bitter and almost sour flavor of this tea. However, it is my go to tea for making Tibetan butter tea.

drank Earl Grey White by Teavana

When I got serious about loose tea this Early Grey was the first one I tried. Over the years it has become my standard for measuring other Earl Grey teas. It has a smooth flavor, and with a little milk is my staple breakfast tea.

Earl Grey is the reason I found tea, and this one was recommended to me. While I don’t like it as much as my regular Earl Grey it is a nice tea when I am looking for something different.

drank Formosa Oolong Finest by TeaFrog

My enjoyment of this tea started from the moment its aroma hit my nose. It has a somewhat earthy quality to it that you think will lead to a heavy flavor. However, the earthiness plays well and leads to the complexity of this tea. I was not expecting light and fruity flavors, and I am still discovering new flavors with each glass. Quickly becoming one of my favorites.

With the exception of Earl Grey, I am not a fan of most flavored teas. However, in this tea the jasmine flowers add flavor without overpowering the delicious green tea. I will say the only mistake I made was making this in 16 oz for the first cup. I corrected that one the next cup.
