Yummmmm! This is a woodsy tasting oolong that is amazingly smooth and has a light touch of jasmine to it as well. This is one that I WILL be purchasing VERY soon! BTW, I had this while eating sushi and it complimented the sushi very well ;-)

I had this again tonight after I came to the realization that I doesn’t and wont taste the way I assumed it would…sooooo I went into this with an open mind and it is actually quite good. It’s sweet, fruity and has a nice lingering jasmine that is in there as well. I like it better this go around, and so I will bump it up on the rating a bit.

This is a pretty good silver needle, VERY fuzzy which when steeped I felt like I was drinking a velvety tea which was cool! It was light a grassy with a subtle sweetness to it… very relaxing! Yummm.

I tried this earlier today thanks to Meghann M and even though I am not a big black tea fan I decided to give some “finer” black teas a try and I must say this is pretty good and I can taste a cocoa taste to it which is pretty cool! I personally couldn’t drink this every day or even often but, that’s just me who doesn’t care for black teas that much. But I can tell that is a black tea that is of great quality and for that I will mark it high, because it is good…it’s just not for me… the non-black tea lover hehe.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Art of Tea
132 tasting notes

GEEZ that is a strong bergamot flavor in this tea!!! Like take my breath away strong! The creamy/vanilla is noticible as a lingering flavor. But there is so much bergamot that I feel like I have a film on my tongue after I swallow. It’s kinda weird and perfumey and I can’t get past that weird oily feel that stays on my tongue! It’s as if they spilled a whole bottle of bergamot oil into a smalll pouch of tea and just left it as is to be sold. I like Earl Grey and I like a strong bergamot flavor, but this was just crazy… perhaps I had a bad batch?! I would like to believe that because I am still pretty freaked by having an “oil” feel on my tongue :-|

Yum, this is so good iced and blended with a bit of Teavana’s Precious White Peach to add a bit of a sweet peach taste to it. I made a big 16oz cup of this for my after dinner summer dessert tea ;-)

Thank you LiberTEAS for letting me try this one. This blend is smooth and I think the flavors all blend together very well. I added a splash of milk to mine and I think it made it even smoother and brought out the sweetness.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

This is a pretty darn good jasmine silver needle! I actually let it steep for nearly 8mins (3mins more than the recommended max). I was scared this wasn’t going to taste good since I did that, BUT it actually was…it had a “chewy” kind of taste to it which gave it more of a personality to me. I taste the vegetal taste of the white tea very clearly with the jasmine lingering lightly in the background letting itself known. This is a very nice tea that I was able to try thanks to LiberTEAS.

Also, now that it has cooled off quite a bit it has a subtle sweetness to it and the chewyness is subsiding. Still yummy, if not better than right out of the tea pot!

Preparation

Is there a bad JSL? lol I’ve only had one.

Eh, I’m sure there are much lower quality ones out there, but so far I haven’t ran across one that was just horrible =)~

drank Royal Palace Pu-erh by Samovar
132 tasting notes

Ahhhh now that’s more like it! I gave this pu-erh a quick rinse and then steeped for the full 5mins and it brewed up to a very dark brown/black color. The taste is like a sweet hay/mossy taste with a bit of astringency to it, but that’s ok! Honestly though I would prefer a stronger earthy/hay/mossy taste. But this is still really good! Nom, nom, nom!!! :-D

Profile

Bio

I am a tea enthusiast who is always looking to try a new tea, but my all time favorite is jasmine pearls…or anything with jasmine in it really. I also am a sushi fanatic and simply can’t live without it. Outside of my fanatasy world of all things tea and sushi I am an executive assistant, mother of 2 and personal taxi/maid and chef service for my little family.

But back to the tea!

I love Jasmine Pearls, just about any White Tea and then we have Pu-erh coming in last as my top three.

However, I still enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, the more bergamot the better! I have a fond place in my heart for Matcha, especially iced Matcha Lattes. Flavored green teas are always fun, but I tend to stay away from the overly grassy tasting ones… they always remind me of a wheatgrass shot!

It takes a special black tea to really win me over, for me I find that they all taste too much alike or tend to be too bitter at times; I think I am more so bored with them.

Oolongs are fairly new to me and I am finding that these are really good and they will probably end up making it as one of my top contenders!

Pu-erh I have yet to try; I am very curious, but a bit scared to try it… something about being aged in a cave just frightens me a bit, but I would like to try one in the very near future :-) Update – I have tried a few pu-erhs and I can’t get enough of them! While they are definitely an acquired taste they are lovely! This has now taken over rooibos in my top 3 teas of choice!
