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 :)

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!

I think the first time I had this one I oversteeped it. I like it much better this time!

Finally brewed this up at home where my variable temp kettle lives, so I can be sure I am doing it right! It is better than the last time I had it, but I think Dragonwell style is one of my least favorite forms of green tea. I’m sure this is a fine Dragonwell if you like dragonwells! I think it’s just too mineraly for me. I can deal with a mineral note along a sweet and floral oolong, but that is 90% what I get out of this one and not much else.

I iced up the re-steep and I actually really enjoyed it this way! Apparently I just don’t like it hot? Weird, but woohoo! I’ll do up the rest of my sample pack iced for sure!

I feel the same way about Dragonwells. Everyone seems to love em but they’re just not for me. Glad I’m not the only one!

Oh gyokuro how I miss you when you are away, hehe. I got my package from yunomi.us yesterday! 4 gyokuros for sampling and some salted Sakura blossoms. Can’t wait to try them all!

This is the best matcha! I had it as a frappe late this afternoon to cool off and re-energize!

Started my day today with a big to-go cup of this iced. Had a tough time at an outdoor art fest with 100+ degree heat indexes today. After this tea I just drank gallons of water till later on when I got home. Glad it’s over with. Probably one of my least favorite art fairs ever!
