I’ve never had a high end black tea like this before! Thank you cheetah_pita for including it in our swap! The first steep is so malty and caramelly and complex. I can see why everyone raves about this one! Can’t wait to steep it again :)

Sil

yay! another convert :)

Stephanie

I so can’t wait for my trial club package to come from them! What will be inside? Exciting!

Sil

Ooh exciting for you! :)

Thanks again to KiwiDelight for the swap! This one is awesome :) I love a good sencha and the walnutty/coconutty flavoring compliments it nicely! This is going on my next Della Terra order list!

drank Magnolia Oolong by Tea District

Thanks KiwiDelight for the sample! I am fond of oolongs and love the smell of magnolia blossoms so I was very curious about this tea! I agree with other reviewers that 1 tbs seems like a LOT of tea. I wish I had only used a tsp or 2 in my cup! I feel like this would be MUCH better if I had done that. I like the floral scent and sweetness of it but I’m getting a heavy almost bitter taste from the vast amount of tea leaves I used! I may rate this differently if I try it again with a different amount of leaves…

KiwiDelight

Did I write tbs instead of tsp?? Oh dear… ._.

Stephanie

I double checked on the website and it confirmed 1 TABLESPOON so I thought I’d try it…but yeah. WAY TOO MUCH, heh :)

KiwiDelight

I hope the second goes better! I haven’t had many oolongs, but I like this one.

Stephanie

I really like the magnolia part!

Stephanie

I got about a billion steeps from that tablespoon! haha…all the subsequent steeps were just fine and not too intense. Yummy in fact! Ooof too much caffeine today…

Had this one as an iced latte with almond milk for breakfast. I got the “distinctive” flavoring option and it is VERY berry pie flavored! I don’t think I will grow tired of this flavor any time soon but it makes me eager to try more matcha flavors from Red Leaf! Yum! :)

Thanks cheeta_pita for the sample! Pretty much exactly what I expected. Nutella tea! Chocolatey and smooth.

Thanks for the sample Yssah! This is a solid blueberry flavored black tea. I don’t really get the “danish” aspect but it is tasty nonetheless! :)

Mmmm, sencha! I like this pretty well but I think I prefer the sencha from Den’s tea. I will have no problem finishing the sample of this I ordered though! :)
