Still enjoying this one. I don’t think I would reorder if it became available for sale but it is welcome in my cupboard as long as it lasts!

I haven’t had this tea in forever! It is still VERY good. Yesterday I drank SO MUCH puerh, heh. (I may have been a tiny bit hungover, heh) Back to work today, and back to cold dreary January. Does anyone else get the post-holiday blahs? I need more tea! ;)

I’m working a half day today and this has been my morning tea while I work. Always enjoyable! So creamy and rich and just astringent enough to be nicely balanced. I haven’t had any real Irish Cream in a few years, but now I want some!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 2013 :)

I’ve had this tea several times now. I’ve been trying to write a tasting note, but I’m having a really hard time describing it. It is bright and sweet, and a little bit tangy. I’m definitely not getting “red velvet cupcake” LOL, but it is certainly a very nice sheng, without any funkyness.

Ehh, this one is not my thing. Honestly, I think Honeybush is just a little too close to rooibos for me. Bummer! I love the idea of apple cinnamon tea…

I agree about the honeybush. Not that much different than rooibos to me.

Thank you so much CrowKettle for sharing some of this special tea with me! :D

It DOES have a really interesting combination of black tea and white tea characteristics. There is enough going on here to keep me rapt sip after sip! I would purchase some in the future, if my cupboard is ever low enough to allow it, lol.

Back at work today and “detoxing” from all the holiday goodies with some shu. I’ve also drank the sheng a few times but haven’t found the words to write a note about it yet, LOL.

This one is much easier to describe. So clean and crisp! :)

blacklog from Christmas!

I got to try the Zhen Qu version of this due to a generous gift from CrowKettle (I bought the oolong version, myself.) I think the dry leaf is so cute and curly :D

For some reason this is my favorite traveling tea right now so I steeped up a to-go cup yesterday for the hour drive to my in-law’s house for the holidays. I honestly couldn’t tell you which I prefer, the black or the oolong. They are both wonderful!

I finished my sample of this from BrewTEAlly Sweet yesterday. It was perfect!

Very tasty Christmas Eve latte for breakfast thanks to the generous CrowKettle!

As suspected the pumpkin pie flavor DOES pair very nicely with white matcha. I drank this whisked with warm whole milk and a little bit of honey. Super rich and tasty :)

Dustin

What is the white matcha base made of and what does it taste like? I haven’t heard of it before!

Stephanie

Basically they grind white tea into a powder instead of green tea like they do for normal matcha!

It tastes similar to white tea- soft and hay like and sweet :)

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.
