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!

Thank you Marzipan for the sample! I made this for breakfast without reading what was in the blend. I picked out the citrus notes right away, along with what I thought was vanilla (must have been the cream?) It also has a sweetness about it that I like.

I would never have tasted chocolate in this blend. So in that respect I suppose it might be disappointing. However, it was a really nice breakfast tea that I enjoyed quite a bit this morning, and it paired perfectly with a homemade maple pecan scone! NOMMMY!

I’m only on steep #2 but YUM! This is really good shu. There is a unique sweet/nutty note that I don’t get very often from shu puerh. I know I’ve tasted it before but I can’t remember where?? Mouthfeel is extra luscious with no musty notes. Very toasty, rich and satisfying.

I will definitely be ordering more of these discs when the new blends are up on the website. Definitely hits the spot! :D

Tealizzy

Yay! So excited to get mine now!!!

Thanks for the sample Ost!

This is a rich, complex black blend. I like it but I feel like it needs something. Like it is missing a top note or needs more natural sweetness? Anyway, this is good but I strongly prefer Golden Orchid and Cocoa Amore :D

I know what you mean about missing top notes. Some teas are all bass notes and while those are tasty, they feel thin or incomplete without the middle and top notes.

Tealizzy

You guys are making me think about that song “it’s all about the bass, ’bout the bass, no treble!” Lol!

Stephanie

I like this horse dancing to that song Tealizzy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qon7K1LfxCY

Another lovely Nina’s sample from Marzipan :)

Mild black with zippy grapefruit tang. Subtle but not in an unsatisfying way. I bet some sugar would really make this one sing!
