Wow, another amazing oolong from my swap with Dinosara! This one is extremely smooth and sweet and lightly vegetal. Everything I like in an oolong :)

drank Red Velvet Cake Mate by 52teas

Thank you GiggleGoddess for the swap! This one is VERY similar to the malted choco-mate. Honestly, I’d have to do a side by side tasting to be able to tell them apart probably? Just really strong chocolate and roasted mate flavor from both of them. Having said that, I DO enjoy them both! :)

I knew I would like this tea as soon as I saw the ingredients list. Thanks Dinosara! I love coconut and nuts and vanilla and white tea. One of my favorite Harney & Sons Blends so far. I received two sachets in my swap and I will be sharing the other with my local friend who is a big H&S tea fan! :)

Kittenna

Ooh, clearly you didn’t mess this one up!! :D Hah I’m pretty excited now!

Stephanie

Yep, not bitter at all here! :)

Alysha

Oh my goodness! This one is going on my shopping list :) Thanks so much for the sample Dinosara! Very natural pineapple flavor. LOVE!

Dinosara

I also love their Melon oolong! And I wish I had some of Naivetea’s flavored oolongs to send you, they are mind blowing.

Stephanie

I’ll have to put some in my shopping list so I don’t forget! :D

drank Northern Lights by DAVIDsTEA

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!

jessiwrites

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.

GiggleGoddess

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!

Marcel Duchamp

I’m glad you like it :-)

drank Wen Shan Bao Zhong by Naivetea
940 tasting notes

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.

Dinosara

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 :)
