drank Nine Lotus by Mandala Tea

Very pleasant light green tea. It lacks bitterness and produces a calming cup. Comes from the nine famous mountains in china, a place home to monks that pray all day. This is a meditative tea that would be wonderful to enjoy in nature.

This is a tea that comes from a highly demanded tea region (Wu-Yi Mountain). This tea is grown on a rocky mountain which brings a unique tasting tea. Da Hong Pao teas can be some of the most expensive tea sold in the world. I do like this tea but its not my favorite Wu Yi tea. I do prefer the lesser oxidized version.

This is a high quality white tea. I do prefer the White Peony one that Mandala sales but this is a unique tea in that it will turn into a black tea if placed in storage. Its a complex tea flavor but overall a pleasant white tea.

This is a great version of Dragon Phoenix Pearls. The intensity is a 8 out of 10 but it uses rolled buds and has some of the jasmine flower present. Its very high quality, the only way you could beat this, is if you consumed it the day it was processed in China. Unless you want to travel to China this won’t be beaten.
I use the gaiwan and do multiple infusions (4-8 seeps). I find it best to infuse longer than the traditional gaiwan formula, like 2 minutes per infusion. I still experiment with the timing.
Great for detoxing and special occasions.

This is a nice Jasmine Green tea. It has a pleasant sweet jasmine aroma, its probably a 6 out of 10 in terms of intensity. I like to use this tea for making Jasmine Rice and putting it in keemun black tea every now and than. Its good for relaxing. Its not the best jasmine I have bought but its organic and not expensive. Can’t go wrong if you like Jasmine scented teas.

This is a very nice blend of teas, perfect balance of the keemun. The fresh almost green taste of the darjeeling and the classic honeyness of the ceylon tea. This is a most try for all those that enjoy black tea!

This is the first Yellow tea I have ever tried. To really appreciate this tea you have to realize how much work is put into this tea! Anyway it has a similar profile to a dragonwell but has a mellowness to the tea. Unlike Dragonwells, I can brew this over a minute and it won’t become bitter or grassy. Whenever I drink this tea it makes me imagine I have climbed up a step Chinese temple and given tea from the emperor to hydrate me. Anyways I enjoy this rare tea.
