Another cold brew backlog. Thanks again Courtney for letting my buy this from you!

I am LOVING this one cold brewed. Pineapple and creamy coconutty goodness! It almost has a marshmallowy quality yet is still totally unsweetened!

Sounds like something to try by the pool this summer!

Cold Brew Backlog!

I’m almost out of this, but I have more on the way, YAY! I’m finding I really enjoy flavored senchas cold brewed, and nothing could be quicker or easier! I will be doing this a lot this spring and summer, I think.

Sil

i keep meaning to order this one heh…

Stephanie

They have a flavored tasting pack right now, Sil with 1oz of each of this, apple, grape, and sakura! In stock until the sakura sells out :)

Sil

yeah..i saw that. pretty tempting but i’m also REALLY trying to be good…so maybe i can hold out until next year hahahaha

Stephanie

I understand completely!

Fjellrev

Funny, I was JUST thinking about Den’s last night, and how I haven’t ordered from the in two years. This definitely sounds like it would make an excellent cold brew!

Stephanie

Now is a great time to remember about Den’s because it is Sakura Sencha time! Limited edition seasonal :)

I was in the mood for something SPRINGish today :)

This is really hitting the spot! Sad I only have one serving left but I guess I need to make room in my cupboard for all the Japanese greens I ordered yesterday…this will be missed though when it is gone. I would definitely buy this one again in a heartbeat!

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Sample sipdown!

Got this in a 5 pack with other flavored white teas a while back. All of them were pretty good, but this was one of my favorites from the set. I would re-stock but the Golden Moon coconut oolong fills the coconut flavored tea space in my cupboard. It is a lighter bodied oolong and similar enough to the white that I don’t feel I need both. This is very good though, and if you like coconut a lot you should probably try it! :)

This tea is so luxurious! I really enjoyed this one. Perfect when you are in the mood for something delicate and floral. I’m a big fan of all Butiki white tea flavored blends :)

Oops I posted this review in the wrong spot originally…

Thanks to Nicholas at Misty Peak Teas for providing a sample of this tea!

This is an extremely SMOOTH and SWEET sheng! Yet still very lively and bright tasting. Extremely yummy. I wish I could afford a whole cake :)

Thank you Garret for including a sample of this with my recent order :)

Wow this is a nice green oolong! It has a sweet greenness that reminds me a bit of sencha, and a lovely floral (lilac?) aftertaste. Not as sweet or creamy as milk oolong but special and charming in its own way. I’m really digging the floral element and mineral notes!

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Super happy that you are enjoying this one! I can’t remember if you have tried the Golden Turtle oolong? We source it from the son of the grower who also gets us the Colored Species oolong. It is also a great green oolong. Thanks for writing up your thoughts on it, my friend!!

Stephanie

Yes! I had a sample of the Golden Turtle from Dinosara once and it may have been my first taste of one of your teas! Very good oolong, too :)

I woke up sleepy and starving so I made a hot latte first thing. Very good but I’m getting burnt out on this flavor and its almost all I’ve got left, matcha wise!

I sure have been drinking a lot of puerh lately, huh?

Today I steeped this one at a lower temp for a longer time. I got more creamy nuttiness and less mushroom notes. Yummmmmmm!

Speaking of shu, has anyone encountered this before?? http://04561.com/image/cache/data/20110518/b3-700×700.jpg It’s puerh tea aged inside an orange rind! I’M SO CURIOUS ABOUT IT!

TeaBrat

I have had those orange rind puerhs before, they’re good. Some people put a little bit of the rind in with the tea while steeping.

Stephanie

OMG I WANT ONE! Teavivre has a tangerine one, and I’ve got reward points to use…hmm

Sil

i love those! I’ve had a few now and while the orange isn’t as strong as i want sometimes, i haven’t been disappointed yet :)

mrmopar

Seen and tasted those a lot. If you are searching for a supplier I know a few.

TheTeaFairy

Stephanie, I have a Teavivre tangerine pu’erh sample on the way, I’ve never had any either and I’m very intrigued by it, can’t wait to try!

Stephanie

Awesome The TeaFairy! :)
