Aaaaand Steepster ate most of my note…SIGH


I also enjoyed this one quite a bit. Glad you had a chance to try it.

Bought this last fall on our trip to Las Vegas. It was very expensive but fun to actually go somewhere that had a few really nice teas I could buy in person.

Anyway this is a pretty decent DANCONG. I definitely prefer Verdant’s dancong though. This one is more strongly mineral tasting and has a faint sour note sometimes.

Today I am drinking a very tasty shou puerh sample from a friend. It is a MYSTERY puerh because it was from Grandness on Aliexpress…anyone able to read it? :)



Post in the forums! Someone usually seems to be able to translate :)


Post it to Teachat. I have gotten translations there before. They have more people who read Chinese.

Revisiting this one today. I am almost out of it now…

I don’t crave cinnamon teas very often but this is an excellent option. Definitely cinnamon bread and NOT redhot cinnamon. Yums.




Wow! I’ve been out of that one for ages! It’s fun to revisit teas. :)

I drank this tea all morning. Thanks for the sample Marzipan!

I found it to have smooth mildness like an aged sheng, but with a little bitter punchiness like a younger sheng. Perplexing! Best of both worlds? Perhaps :)

Tealizzy was kind enough to send me a sample of this tea! I have been curious about it for a while :)

And it lives up to the hype! Very complex, super sweet and apricotty, silky, a little floral and just enough tart/bitter notes to keep it interesting. Damnit, now I really want to order a cake! :D

I took some pics of my session-

Drank a to go mug of this yesterday while I was waiting for my car’s oil change to be completed. I hadn’t had this one in a while and forgot how good it is! Predominantly sweet potato notes with a hint of toasty malt. YUM!

Special thanks to Sarsonator who gave me her tea cash before it expired and made this tea happen :D


Love this one too

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
