drank Magnolia Oolong by Tea Ave

Okie dokie. Not sure of what was going on with the jasmine so I’m moving on to this one. An interesting aroma when dry. Not quite sure but I think of China when I smell it….

1tsp. Small, one cup glass tea pot. Sorry but I microwaved the water. Wasn’t sure if something is wrong with my kettle. Maybe I’m the issue because I drank too many flavoured black teas on my trip. Sorry anyway… at 1 min it was too light so I put it back in again. But even at a minute I can tell how smooth it is. Like silk on my tongue. Light flavor of magnolia and other vegetal flavors. You really have to have a palette capable of tasting all the intricacies of these oolongs. Otherwise it’s very easy to miss. I also find you really need the perfect water temp. I think the flavors come out a bit more as it becomes luke warm.

Second steep about the same. 30 seconds yields very subtle flavors. Much better at a minute not sensing the usual butter oolong flavors. I can kinda tell they’re there but lightly.

1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

drank Jasmine Oolong by Tea Ave

This is a very delicate oolong. Light on jasmine. Subtle butter. Little bit of honeysuckle. It’s not as strong as I thought it was going to be and I’m wondering if I did something wrong. The other reviews had me so excited but they truly I feel that I must have gotten a bad batch or something.

Yea… I’m really not picking up those nice oolong and usual jasmine scents or tastes. I may have to get the other one from the other box and see if that one is better.

This is probably my favorite blend from 52teas. Goes quite well with trefoils. Its amazing I can really taste the pie. I was worried at first thinking it was rooibos but the fact that it’s honeybush makes it that much better.

Flavors: Cream, Strawberry

Preparation
8 min or more 1 tsp

drank French Toast by 52teas

My first impression of this tea was not very good. All I tasted was black …Ceylon? I’m not very good at identifying black bases. Kinda bitter. As I let it cool down I experienced more of the flavors but not as much as I thought I would. I’m going to try this again tomorrow with some …honey or something added and see how it changes.

drank Vanilla Green by Adagio Teas

I love vanilla black tea so I had to try this one. the vanilla smell on the dry leaves is quite nice but honestly I’m not enjoying the flavor as much as I thought I would. Somehow vanilla just seems to go better with black tea in my opinion anyways. It is light and I can barely taste the green tea but it’s definitely there

Preparation

I tend to prefer my desert teas to be blacks. The flavors just seem to cooperate better.

Another tea with interesting ingredient! Bamboo. Not something I would have thought to flavor a tea with but it works. Makes me think of the HNL airport and their outside garden for some reason. It’s truly a unique taste. Grassy sencha with that interesting flavor that bamboo gives it. I think my favorite part is the after taste it leaves in your mouth.

An interesting name for a tea. I do like unique names though because it makes you think about more then tasting notes, aroma and color. For instance with this tea I imagine a masquerade with a lady who has a butterfly mask. She’s slipped out onto the back terrace to sip on this tea.

Sencha? It looks and tastes like it. I really enjoy that the peach flavor doesn’t get covered up by the peach flavor like it does with many peach teas. Though it is still quite strong with this one. (And suddenly I’ve jumped into Star Wars) haha

Flavors: Peach

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

drank Jasmine Goji Oolong by Say Tea
378 tasting notes

Huzzah a tea with goji berries! I just wish it was a green oolong instead of a black. As I seem to not be big on the black but regardless this is good. The goji berries create a really nice slightly sweet flavor to balance out the earthyness of the oolong.

Preparation
3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

When I first read their ingredient list for this tea I thought it was a joke. I still kinda do. Fog? What is that supposed to be? They have a crazy mix of stuff but it works well. It reminds me a bit of peach but the apricot bits don’t make me think peach. Also not tasting much Lychee. This is quite good warm but I am enjoying it more luke warm.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
