A bitter smelling tea. Luckily the taste is not bitter like the smell. Its very mellow. Slightly grassy, which is weird because I find most green teas have a heavy to medium grassy taste. And I don’t want to steep it too much longer because of those bitter notes in the smell.

Sweet and flowery. Too much hibiscus though. It’s a nice tea but I’m just not a huge fan. It sure smells good though.

Satisfying but it doesn’t quite give me that ‘I want more of this’ sensation. It’s smooth and has a strange slightly zingy aftertaste. It is indeed also fruity. Though if you were to ask me what fruit, well I couldn’t quite tell ya. Perhaps I should have steeped it longer because I really feel that it’s too light. Still has plenty of flavor but could use more.

Hibiscus. Why teavana? It doesn’t need it. I can taste,the chocolate hints, while the oolong hides just behind it. It’s been awhile since I’ve had any mate so I’m not picking it up as easily but i know the flavor and its there somewhere.

As I started steeping the tea I thought to myself, “drinking a mustache does not sound at all appetizing.” However, this is quite enjoyable. It’s like a light chai. Think I’m going to steep it just a bit longer to see if I can get some spice added to it. (Best chai I ever had was in New Zealand from a street vendor who made it in front of me.)

At 30 seconds – Nie. I’m stopping it here. Good flavor and I’m a little worried I’m going to make it bitter. This is all without milk by the way. I like to try tea ‘pure’ before I add anything to it. The 30 seconds added on gave it a woodsy flavor and a slight minty..ish after burn. Doesn’t taste like mint but gives a ‘burn’ of mint.

Time for milk. Almond milk that is. But I’ve warmed t up too hot…

Ok It’s cooled down quite a bit but not enough that’s cold. I added what I considered to be a hefty amount. Honestly, I liked it better plain. Maybe it would be better with some froth.

Not quite what I thought it was going to taste like. There are some toasty bitter notes that just don’t sit well on my tongue. I feel like this oolong is missing something. Its eartuy and overall not bad but just not a te that makes u want to come back for more.

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 with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
