Nice. Very light flavor so I like it with a bit of honey. Great for blends.

The toasted rice tastes a bit metallic to me and I don’t care for vegetal greens.

The rooibos is woody and smokey. The cinnamon is subtle but it’s there. The longer it steeps the better. I like it with a little sweetness.

The green tea in this blend is definitely in the background. However, the spearmint is reined in by the tea. In the end, you have a mild spearmint flavor. It won’t smack you in the face like a peppermint candy but it is nice and refreshing. A little honey really goes nicely with it.

Before steeping, the leaves smell perfectly tropical with a hint of green tea mustiness. The aroma is sweet. The flavor is actually milder than I expected but in a very nice way. Every once in a while, a sip would leave a streak of fruity yumminess that would linger on my tongue for a while. I’m not sure if that came from the pineapple or the blue malva flowers but whatever it came from, it was extremely pleasant.

This is a really nice chai. It’s odd but I like it simply sweetened, no creaminess needed. The vanilla is the dominant flavor but the spices hold their own. I’m actually tempted to try it hot.

So yummy! The dry mix smells like sweet flowers. It’s fun to watch steeping since the leaves open up quite a bit. I was a little worried about the rosehips since that flavor seems to overwhelm me in most teas but not here thankfully. The tea is a light syrup, a little astringent. Floral, but not overwhelmingly so. The last and lingering taste is pomegranate. The sample is only enough for a few cups so I think this will pop up on my shopping list once I whittle down my current stash.

I have tried this a few times now at different temps and steep times. I just do not like it at all. It was my first oolong so there is a chance that I just don’t care for them. The dry leaves smelled unappealing. The flavor reminds me of malt and over-stewed greens. I like mild green teas and this oolong reminded me of an extremely vegetatal green. Not for me.
