This tea is AMAZING. I love this oolong. It is floral and green and slightly smokey. I love how the leaves unfurl slowly. I was able to get 3 steeps out of this until I started getting distracted. My baby enjoyed watching the leaves as well. Great oolong!

My sister had gone to Aruba and bought this for me. I finished this quickly. Its a decent black tea that wakes me up in the morning.

So I really wanted to like this tea, but I can’t. It is so offensive. There is a strange super sweetness to this mlblend. It tastes artificial – like those artificial sweeteners. Yuck! I couldn’t get past that taste to apappreciate the flavors. I will be throwing this away unless someone wants it. Vomment or send me a msg.

Haha, vomment. Freudian slip?

Yikes, that ingredient list looks obnoxious.

Thank you Angel for these samples!

I absolutely positively LOVE oolong teas. I cannot say that enough. This one is great! It is a green oolong. I love how it is all balled up then unravels as it is steeped. It is fragrant and floral and green. I love it. It steeps to a nice pale yellow. The flavor is light and floral. There is just the right amount of natural sweetness to it and there is no astringency that I can detect. Delicious!! This can be steeped several times.

What is your favorite type of oolong? I love floral ones-if you have any recommendations, hit me up (:

Again another tea that I’ve waited so long to review. I am almost done with my bag of tea! I love the colorful leaves mixed in with this black tea. I smell the slight berry flavor on the dry leaf. Steeped, it is a nice, dark brew. This is quite a strong tea! It definitely is great for the morning. The flavor is slightly malty with some astringency to it. It doesn’t need additives though. It is good on its own. I love the slight berry flavor it has as well. Yum!

drank English Breakfast by Kusmi Tea

Sipdown! I have been slacking so much on writing tea reviews. I drank this tin all the way without having a review. tsk tsk. The steep is a honey golden brown color. First, I love the packaging. It has a lot of detail and the color is orange, which I love! I always reuse tins and wrap them in colorful paper. Second, this tea is milder than any breakfast tea that I have had. This is more of an afternoon tea. It is good and bad. Good because I can drink this in the afternoon as well. Also good because I do not need to add any sweetener or milk to it. It is fine just on its own. Bad because I need to drink something to wake me up in the morning, especially since I am no longer a coffee drinker. The flavors are mild as well. All in all a decent tea. It has astringency to it but still drinkable like I said without the additives.
