This is probably my favorite Vintage Teaworks tea. Nice and smooth, a hint of licorice, and just slightly sweet.

This is pretty interesting. It’s very cherry (and maybe cinnamon?) and slightly pu-erh. Pretty good. I’d even suggest it to people who aren’t fans of pu-erh, just to give it a try.

Sweet with a little bite. I think I prefer this over the Oolong, where the Oolong can be overly sweet sometimes I find this one a little more even-tempered.

Sweet, smooth. You get a little traditional Oolong flavor but the inclusion of papaya is so unique that it’s like trying it for the first time.

drank Hiya by Hiya Tea
175 tasting notes

I can’t believe I keep forgetting to review this tea. Good iced or hot, pretty difficult to over steep (or at least the tea is very forgiving). The taste is nutty, kind of almond-like (or maybe a little cocoa), but not overpowering. Incredibly convenient on those days you forget to save time for brewing tea (great for work/school/etc).

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

This is my first Darjeeling, so my opinion isn’t particularly well-informed. I’d definitely describe it as delicate, slightly sweet/wine-like.

drank Violet by Kusmi Tea
175 tasting notes

Not as sweet as A&D’s magnolia flavored Mermaid’s Kiss or a traditional jasmine, reminds me a little of Easter candy. I’d definitely recommend it.

drank Kashmir Tchai by Kusmi Tea
175 tasting notes

I’ve heard people complain that Kusmi tea is a little expensive and maybe not the greatest tasting. I’d completely disagree. (The pictures don’t do it justice, the tin I got was huuuuuge.) Kashmir Tchai isn’t particularly surprising, it tastes basically how it smells, and it smells good. Spicy, subtle, good on a winter day.
