I can’t believe it’s not butter!

Rich, like a snickerdoodle cookie (no lie) and the plant life comes out with subsequent steeps. Really good!

Like the evening sun through a bedroom window, strokes of warm, subtle tones coalesce into a tea that is distinguished and soulful. Expect from the liquor a stone fruit sweetness and nuttiness that gently kisses the earth.

Deliberate.

If I am to have a comfort tea, this is it.

It’s a good blend. Bright edges peek through a pleasant foundation of warm stone and finishes with a comely fruit sweetness. Easy enough.

Threw in some pu-erh to give it bass. It worked.

Wow. Really, now, the folks at Admaritea have the oolong hook-up. The select few I’ve tasted so far are absolutely exceptional including this one.

It’s quite dark but not least bit charred and has a deep, decadent sweetness.

Bing!

Real first flush ephemera, light citrus sweetness and a soft yet enticingly deep and elegant finish round out this fine Darjeeling.

I’m having an English tea party in my brain and all the well-to-dos are here.

The scent of the dry leaf is very sweet and very fruity like fruit roll-ups. Awesome fruit roll-ups. Once steeped the leaf releases a scent of creamy vegetation.

And the liquor, yeah. . . nice. Think mango sticky rice and a green tea marshmallow gently folded into a raincloud.

Smooth and dreamy.

It seems the people at TeaGschwendner already have a knack for accurate descriptions of their teas so here’s a poem . . .

Mm hmm. When you open the bag and smell there is the undeniable scent of candied pineapple. I will emphasize that there is not the slightest scent of candy, but of candied fruit. Yum.

Upon cupping the tea the sweetness that once prevailed transformes into a gorgeous blend of floral high notes and layers of tropical nuance.

I drank it hot but this tea yearns to be iced.

A masterful blend.
