I am actually drinking the new autumn harvest version of this tea. I’m not sure if it was the power of suggestion or what, but I taste apricots! There is a richness underneath the floral/apricot note. I am really digging this. Still in the early steepings- I can’t believe I’m supposed to get TEN steepings from these leaves! I am really enjoying this one and I haven’t even sweetened it! I might try sweetening a later steeping just for fun. I usually enjoy a tiny bit of raw sugar in my oolongs.

WOW! This tea is TRUE burnt sugar caramel flavor. Super rich and wonderful! I wish I had ordered more than just a sample of it…there’s a hint of maybe floral on top of it all? I assume that is a note from the oolong itself coming through. Goodness though, wonderful dessert oolong! Makes me think of the crunchy top of a creme brulee.

sigh except it’s an oolong….

It is indeed.

Apparently I had this one before joining Steepster as I don’t have a note for it here. I thought this was a fun cup. By the ratings it seems not every one gets it.

Finally trying this from my trial tea of the month club box….it tastes like the forest floor. I haven’t decided yet if that is a good thing or not! :)

So, this tea is pretty decent but I think it is a little weird to have cinnamon in a “toasted marshmallow” flavored tea. But its not bad! There was a whole allspice berry in my cup today, too.

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea

Mmmm, this is great! Most of the time I do not sweeten my straight sencha/gyokuro, so I wasn’t sure if I would want to sweeten this one or not. Seems pretty good unsweetened which is a WIN!

Sil

may need to do a swap with you at some point for a taste of this heh

Stephanie

I’d be game :)

I just got this in a swap with Lariel :) oh man, I didn’t expect to like this one. I kind of hate jellybeans, and I’m super picky with my herbals, but this is actually pretty great! Reminds me of tazo passion if that one was straight strawberry flavored.

This might be my favorite flavored tea of all time. Smooth green oolong base…creamy coconut all over the place- OMG! If you love coconut and oolong this one is highly recommended :)

Dinosara

One of my faves! I miss having this one in my cupboard.

Stephanie

It is definitely an impulse buy I am NOT regretting! :)

Oh wow this is pretty good! Nice true cantaloupe/honeydew type of flavor. I may have slightly underleafed my cup. I will do 1.5tsp next time for a stronger flavor. I sure dig me some white tea :)

drank Jasmine Pearl by thepuriTea

Woohoo! New jasmine pearls to try! Thanks Dinosara :)

This one is not quite as naturally sweet and delicate as some of the others I have tried. It is still quite good though. I can’t get enough of jasmine pearls in general!
