This tastes so delicious today! I steeped it for longer than usual and the flavors really came out. The warm spices came out. A great tea overall. It went great with fried rice too!

I wasn’t sure what this was called. I received this in a swap, and it was called Chai Chai Blend with Rock Sugar. Upon further reading its a mix of White Ayurvedic Chai, Samurai Chai Mate, and German Rock Sugar.

From the bag, it smelled like cherry soda. It didn’t translate the same way in the cup. In the cup, it smelled more like sweet ginger and other spices. It brewed a very light white/yellow color. The taste was sweet and delicious! It was mildly fruity and I could taste a tinge of ginger. Overall the rock sugar made it so sweet! Yum!

drank Sweet Autumn Tea by Lupicia

I received this as one of those free monthly samples in the mail. I forgot that the yellow wrapping meant rooibos. Nevertheless, I opened it and realized it was rooibos! It smelled sweet when it was dry. After steeping it, it smelled strange to me. I guess its the sweet potato, pumpkin, rooibos combination that threw me off. I don’t want to type this out… but it smells a little like vomitus… I was hesitant to taste it, but I love trying new things so I put it to my lips. The taste is nice, mild, and sweet! It was flavorful and delicious after I got over the initial scent. It is very very scarcely starchy with a chestnut type of flavor in the background. Delicious.

drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1569 tasting notes

I used up the last bits of this tea yesterday. It has been so long since I’ve written a lengthy review on steepster or even visited steepster. Residency has taken up a lot of my time and energy. I will miss this tea. It deserves to be placed in my wishlist. The floral and slightly milky scent was delicious! I steeped this about 4 times before I got distracted. It was delicious after every steep. I love how the leaves unfurl. It is so beautiful. Milk oolong is one of my favorite teas. I am happy!

I’ve got to order some of this. I wasn’t terribly impressed when I first tried it, but I love milk oolongs! What size cup did you use to steep so many infusions?

I love milk oolongs too! This isn’t my most favorite milk oolong, but its among the top 10 for me! I used a 4oz gaiwan and a lot of leaves. I forget how long I steeped, but it was around 15-30 seconds for the first 2 steeps. Then I increased it to 1 minute for the following steeps. :)
