Almost sipped this one down today. One serving left. I used to really enjoy it but it pales in comparison to some of the lovely TeaUrchin shengs I’ve been drinking lately. Oh well, at least it is almost gone :)

Drank some of this iced all afternoon. It was wonderful and perky! Iced tea is necessary right now. I’m ready for Fall!!!

Sad swap sample sip down! I think this was from Terri? Anyway, it was much appreciated :)

So malty and delicious! Apparently Jin Jun Mei is a style I really like…and alas now there is none left in my cupboard. Good stuff though! I will get more from somewhere someday :D

I bought this at a huge international market in Ohio. Apparently they are very popular in Guam. Tastes like yoohoo with some tea in it :P

Wow this is really goooood! Thanks for the sample Tealizzy :D

So sweet and rich and almost caramelly. I get why everyone compares this one to roasted sweet potatoes, too. I like this a lot. I will probably purchase some next time I make a TeaVivre order!

Thanks for the sample Cameron B!

This is a delicious malty and sweet jin jun mei. My second steep was even sweeter. I would totally drink this one again. YAY my first tea from Teasenz! :)

This is interesting sheng. Nice woody qualities. I am getting a little bitterness/sourness, but it could just be me. I never seem to do as well with mao cha as I do with sheng cakes. Perhaps I just prefer cakes? Or I haven’t got the brewing down on mao cha yet. Either way, not bad, but with as many other shengs I have found that I REALLY love, I probably won’t seek this one out again. I will definitely re-steep this a few more times and see if anything else interesting comes into play flavor wise. I do really prefer ones with a little sweetness/fruitiness!

Thanks for the opportunity to taste some of it, Cheri! I really appreciate it :)

2nd orange oolong sample of the day! Interesting to compare this one to the Verdant I sampled earlier.

This one has a lot more orange going on, but nuttiness instead of spice. I think this would be great iced with a little sugar. Thanks for the sample Cameron B!

Yum yum yum. :D

Thanks Cameron B for the sample!

I actually quite like this. The TGY is of course, really delicious. The additions to it are subtle, but welcome and seem to pair very nicely. I would not have know there was orange just by the taste, but the subtle spices are very nice! Yummo.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
