This one is gone, too. I liked it while I had it but I’m kind of happy it’s gone… More room for a new tea :D The butter rum is a nice flavor to accompany a black tea. It’s a smooth cup with good flavor! Farewell Butter Rum!

Another one gone! This one is ok. I’m getting cheesecake but a super faint cherry flavor. The genmaicha comes through a lot and gives it a crust feel. I liked it but it won’t be missed.

drank Chestnut by Adagio Teas

Going through all of my tea tonight and deciding which ones are going up for swap! I really like this tea. The flavor is nice, nutty, and makes a good black tea latte :)

Randomly picked this one tonight. I completely forgot I had this one. It’s enjoyable while I’m cooking dinner. It’s enjoyable. The oolong stands out in this one. Kind of a mineral flavor but still sweet. The strawberry and champagne lend kind of a tart note but blends well with the oolong :)

drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea

I do love this tea and I’m sad it’s gone. But that means one step closer to reducing my stash and getting new tea! I have a long way to go… D: I like this tea because the coconut isn’t overwhelming. The nutty/buttery oolong is the dominant flavor with coconut kind of hanging out in the background. I added a little bit of honey to this and it tastes exactly like a coconut macaroon. MMmmmm

Another one from the box :3 the flavor of this tea is straight jasmine. Not really finding a puerh flavor. Very floral and purfumey. But I liked it :) wish there was more puerh coming through though.

Third one from by box :3 I thought this one would be taken over by ginger.. But it turns out puerh is the dominant flavor! Ginger kind of hangs out in back in the aftertaste. It has a nice little kick to it but not enough to completely ruin the cup. It complements the puerh’s earthy flavor.

I was really curious about chocolate and puerh hanging out in the same cup. It turns out they like each other :3 This tea honestly reminds me of Mexican hot chocolate. It has a nice creamy chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon and then an earthy note from the puerh.

My mom gave me a Numi Puerh set for Christmas so I broke it out this morning and tried few :) This one has a pleasant aroma. Herbal notes with mint and earthy puerh. It has such an interesting taste! Honestly basil reminds me of spaghetti… so now I want to use my gift cart and go to Olive Garden… haha but the flavor is good! Mint, basil, and puerh are all present. Puerh is the dominate flavor followed by mint and finally basil in the aftertaste.

Thank you Angel and Teavivre for a generous sample of this tea! The dry leaf smells sweet and kind of buttery with a touch of floral. The taste is sweet, buttery, smooth, and slightly nutty. It’s very mellow but very easy and smooth to drink. It almost has a silky mouth feel to it :) I really enjoy this green!

Flavors: Butter, Nutty, Sweet, Vegetal

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
