I’m not sure what to make of this one! It is a lot richer and earthier than I expected. And kind of smokey though I’m sure it isn’t actually smoked like a lapsang. That is the only thing I can think to compare it to though, a VERY mellow lapsang! Interesting. A new experience for sure :)

drank Jasmin by Nina's Paris

I was thrilled to see this in my most recent package of samples from Nina’s since I’m such a big fan of jasmine teas! I don’t believe I’ve ever tasted lotus in a tea before. I’m not sure I can pick it out over the jasmine flavor/scent. This is a particularly flowery jasmine! The base tea is a little richer and heavier and less sweet than my beloved jasmine pearl teas. Nice if you are in the mood for something with a little more body to it! This is basically a fancier version of the basic jasmine tea they serve at my favorite Chinese restaurant. Classic and sophisticated :)

Sencha is one of my favorites! Thank you Laurent for this sample :)

This Sencha Yame is particularly spinachy. Sweet and bright and GREEN with a light smokey/grainy undertone. I love it!

I got three little sample packs of this in my trail tea of the month club box a few months back. Felt like a nice pu-erh today to sorta detox after the weekend! Tasty and nutty and chasing away my sweets craving :)

drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas

I must really like this one because I caught myself hoarding it! This morning I wanted to drink some, but almost didn’t because I am running kind of low and thought maybe I should save it for later, lol. Drinking it anyway and enjoying the heck out of it. :)

Not bad! The mint and rose are not overpowering the white tea flavor. Not my favorite combo ever but not as bad as I had feared (I recently found I have an aversion to overly rosey teas!) If you like mint and rose this would be one to try :)

Such a summery black tea! Very fruity but still rich…just what I needed this morning :)

Sip down! This was enjoyable but I won’t be ordering it again. I much prefer the puerh tuo chas from Butiki :)

drank Unknown Puerh by Red Leaf Tea

Not a bad puerh! I wasn’t expecting much out of this since it was free and all (just paid for shipping) but it actually turned out to be a good smooth non-fishy cup of pu! I probably should have cut the cube in half, I am not sure I will be able to drink enough cups during the day at work today to use up these leaves. Might have to take them home after work and do a cold steep as ashmanra suggested :D

Thanks a bunch Red Leaf Tea!

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

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.
