Yes, hurrah! An oolong! Finally! Just a straight up, plain, mmmm. I may not have put as many leaves in this as I should have, because it was a little weaker than I was expecting, but still a delicious cup.

A solid breakfast tea – and I do appreciate the fact that it is organic! There’s nothing fancy about this one, just a nice, dependable taste.

drank Christmas Tea by t Leaf T

Kind of like a milder chai, and with some other random spices… but I liked! I had a Christmas Tea I loved from last year from another company (I can’t remember it off hand at the moment), and that one will always be near and dear to me, but this is not a bad substitute! Pretty brilliant with some milk!

drank Chai by t Leaf T

Another good cup! It’s just your basic chai, but I loved the cinnamon and spice that came out of this one – and the cardamom, mmm. I steeped it probably less than I should have, so it wasn’t as strong as I would have liked it, but this was a delicious treat on a chilly afternoon. Not the best chai I’ve had, but for the price, this one is pretty good.

drank Wicked Red Strawberry by t Leaf T

I was a bit wary of the rooibos base on this one, since I didn’t think adding milk would be a good idea with this one, but… yum! One of the better strawberry teas I’ve had, I must say. I do enjoy the fact that it’s caffeine free, which means bedtime tea! LOL.

drank Manchuria Mango by t Leaf T

This tastes pretty much exactly like Mango Madness from Davids, except it is a green blend rather than white. Delicious. :D

drank Golden Monkey by t Leaf T

I liked this one! It had a bit of a different taste for a black tea, but it was nice with some milk, so… yay? LOL. A little bit malty, but a lot more delicate than other malty blends I’ve had.

drank Creme Brulee by t Leaf T

Contrary to the other reviews… I actually like this one, haha. I didn’t really get any of the burnt taste – maybe the amount of milk I had in it cancelled it out? Not my favourite dessert tea around, but I think I would get this one again. I definitely liked the black tea base in this as opposed to the rooibos (though the DT version of this is also pretty good).

drank Keemun by t Leaf T

Another bold choice! Definitely don’t over steep this one, haha. I enjoyed this cup, but I don’t think this is a tea I’d get again. There was just something… off, maybe, about the taste? Something added that I didn’t 100 like? Whatever it is, there will be other black blends that I will go to before having this one again, though I’m not sorry I tried this one.

drank Vanilla Vice by t Leaf T

Hmm. This is a weird one. It’s a decent cup of black tea, but the vanilla wasn’t what I was expecting – I’ve had plenty of vanilla-flavoured teas over the years, so I know what to look for. Maybe it needed something else to bring the taste to the forefront? I added milk, and that didn’t really help, either. I still have some more of this one, so I’ll maybe make it another way and see if my rating changes any.
