Hey, this is not bad! A tea with mint where I can taste things other than the mint! That in itself makes this one interesting. Oh, and thanks GiggleGoddess!

This is one that I’ve looked at so many times! What would you compare it to?

Stephanie

I can’t really think of a comparison…it’s mostly mint but I can also detect mild juniper and a hint of maybe fruit? It works for me but I could see how it might not work for some. Juniper is a love / hate thing I think.

It’s the apple I believe:) It definitely reminds me of the mountains, lol.

Thank you Marcel Duchamp for the sample! Sure enough, this has a very natural strong strawberry flavor. Also this is the most pastry or baked goods type flavor I’ve gotten from a flavored tea. Very nice!

I’m glad you like it :-)

Thank you so much for the sample Dinosara! I wanted to try this one first because I’ve had a Bao Zhong before but never a plain one. I have had a coconut flavored one that I LOVED. This one is wonderful too! Might be my favorite oolong I’ve tried so far :D I can’t wait to get to my next steep, heh. It is light and buttery and floral YUM.

Yay, glad you like it!

Got these in a swap from yssah They’re pretty solid little jasmine pearls! I’m only on my first steep now. Hopefully they will hold up for many steepings like my Butiki pearls do :)

I feel so privileged to have gotten a free sample of this one! It is extremely smooth, malty and caramelly. I’m on my third steep now and savoring every sip :)

I only have one tsp left of this after I finish drinking this cup. Makes me sad because I LOVE this one! Must savor it…
