Made a hot latte out of this for breakfast with milk and maple syrup. Next time I will brew it up twice as strong as it is a little weak. Really going to be excellent when I get it right though!

I got this sachet from BrewTEAlly Sweet :)

Not a bad little bagged jasmine! Very much like the kind they serve at good Chinese restaurants. Always welcome in my tea stash ;)

YUM! Thanks for this sample with my most recent order, Stacy! It IS very similar to the Mi Xian Black, but a little bit less floral and a little more rich and malty tasting. I am really enjoying this today. Happy Friday everyone!

Oooooh, as it cools I’m getting the powdered sugar/funnel cake flavor. YUM!!!!

drank Unknown Puerh by Red Leaf Tea

Today I am drinking the nest shaped tuocha! There was only one in my bag, most of them were the little rectangular cubes. It is even smoother than the cube! I really need to get my hands on some high quality puerh in the near future. I wish Mandala had a small sampling pack or something!

you can buy “sample”/small sizes from garrett – i ordered a few from him to try recently. I highly recommend trying special dark and noble mark…you can get the same tea that they pressed to make their phatty cake too if you want a sense of whether you’d like that one too…oh just place an order! haha i’ve only been able to place one order with garret and it’s all so delicious!

Stephanie

Can you buy less than a full ounce for sampling? When I look on the website that is the smallest quantity I see…I really would prefer a half ounce or less for sampling purposes!

Perfect tea for fall! Just enough cinnamon and nutmeg. The slightly astringent ceylon pairs perfectly! I’m drinking this straight at work this afternoon, but I’ll make this one extra strong one day soon and add some milk or cream and brown sugar. Oh man I can’t wait! :D

This is an excellent green tea! It is very similar to the Laoshan Bilochun green I drank yesterday actually, in that the sweetness and vegetal levels are similar, but this one has a slight floral aftertaste like a good green oolong or something. Definitely my sort of tea! Very very nice and I’m so glad I got to try it :)

Stephanie

OMG as the cup cooled the floral taste got even stronger…this is going onto my “top favorite teas of all time” list!

This is super tasty. I’ve been blissing out on it all afternoon long. Nice and comforting for a BUSY day after a holiday at work!
