Yet another tea from my swap with Dinosara.

This is Verdant’s autumn tie kuan yin from 2011. Its funny how their packaging is totally different! I got some really great fruity notes from this one.

drank Maple Pecan Oolong by Butiki Teas
934 tasting notes

Another tea from my swap with Dinosara.

I’ve also really wanted to try Butiki for a while! Their flavored oolongs seem to get really good reviews. LOVE the scent of this one. Obviously it’s not as strong after brewing, but was still nutty and deserty. I probably should have added sugar to it (which I dont normally do).

drank Fig Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
934 tasting notes

This was from my tea swap with Dinosara.

My first Red Leaf Matcha! Ive been meaning to try these for a while =) Im impressed with how well they flavored it – tastes genuinely fig-like! This was robust flavoring, so there wasn’t much green tea taste and more of the fig taste. Definitely can see trying all the flavors addicting!!

Dinosara

Yes, this is one of my favorite fruity ones from them! The fig flavor is great.

Insaaaaanely good. I was surprised at the Wu Yi added as well! I could definitely taste it and it added extra roasty-ness. I want to have this again already :P
