Great beginner pu-erh. Strong ginger flavor but goes well with the earthy pu-erh.

Keemun is by far my favorite black tea. Complex and a hint of smoke makes this great to drink straight up with no sugar or milk. For people who don’t like Assams, you need to give this a try. Great for any time since the caffeine doesn’t hit you like the Indian blacks. If you have never tried one, get this, you will be surprised.

My favorite morning green tea now. Hardy, vegetal with a bit of sweetness. Goes well with food, or just a morning tea to clear your head. Bought a tin of this at Whole Foods for a good price. Excellent intro to Chinese green teas.

Very nice green tea for a meal or afternoon, since it is darker than most greens with the complexity of an Oolong. Pleasantly surprised with how complex the flavor was and would consider it a hardy green tea (which is why I recommend it for a meal). One of my favorites now.

drank Ume Shiso by Rishi Tea

Great desert tea or afternoon tea. Love the sweetness of the shisho which only adds to the green tea and doesn’t overpower it. Good one to serve to guests after dinner.

What a great tea. It is as dark green in person as in the picture. Sweet and slightly grassy. A special treat when you are able to get it. Highly recommend.

Beautiful tea. I was very excited to try a white tea from Ceylon and it didn’t disappoint. Smooth and floral, even though not as floral as Silver needle.

drank Six Summits by Teavana

Very good for a flavored Oolong. A light roasted Oolong similar to a tie kwan yin. Lightly scented and flavored with raspberries. Great aspect is that the raspberries don’t detract from the tea itself. Probably one of my favorites from Teavana.

Been a heavy tea drinker for the last 4 years. I like a bit of everything. Natural flavorings are my only red flag, try to stay away from those.
