Thank you so much Cheri for sharing a couple of these minis with me!

Man, I love mini tuos. They are so adorable and convenient! This is a VERY tasty shou as well. Nice and clean with some creamy earthy cocoa notes. Quite satisfying. These are going on my Mandala shopping list for sure! YUMS!

Thanks for the sample Marzipan!

This is good…the cinnamon isn’t too overpowering and the apple is nice and natural. I don’t get much vanilla, but overall the package is quite nice, with the mild black base and all.

Thank you for the sample cookies!

I always like a good Yunnan black. This one is no exception. Very satisfying. Not anything unique or spectacular compared to other Yunnans I’ve tried, but definitely a tasty solid tea choice.

drank Autumn Song by Mandala Tea

This was the last untasted sample from my Mandala Sheng sampler!

Unfortunately I did not take good notes as I drank it all day at work, but I did enjoy this one. Definitely some sweetness here, not too much bitterness, some light floral/fruit notes. Not as bold and brassy as some young sheng can be.

Thank you for the sample cookies!! :)

This is sooooo delicious and malty! It’s got that smooth sweet potato Fujian thing going on. VERY nice black tea.

It is pairing very nicely with my apple butter, yogurt and pecan granola parfait for breakfast :)

Mmm good shou! I’ve been so lucky to get to try so many great puerh samples lately.

This one has lots of earthy flavors and no funk. I don’t know how to describe it other than this is what shou is supposed to taste like. Kind of basic but super clean and enjoyable!

Thanks Marzipan for the sample!

I really like this green tea! It is sweet and bold and a little tangy. Sorry you don’t like green tea Marzipan but YAY more for me ;)

I think Ost sent me this sample! Thanks Ost!

I like pouchong a lot. Nice and light and floral. Pairs very well with sweet fruit like peaches. Another fruity winner from Lupicia!

Mmm, another awesome sheng sample!

This is tongue tingly stuff. Kind of sweet with pleasant bitterness/astringeny, too. When I exhale after sipping it is like spicy flowers. Very enjoyable and complex!

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.
