I think I enjoyed this tea. It was a little difficult to tell, but that is because it was mailed with some scented teas. The flavor of one of the teas seeped into the sencha. I enjoyed the sencha notes that I could discern from the bleeding scent. I am optimistic about this tea.
43 Tasting Notes
This tea has a slight vegetal notes and a delicate flavor.
I tried the Green Rooibos today, and I cannot complain. It is exactly what it claims to be- Green Rooibos. Sweet and woodsy.
I really liked this dessert tisane. The coconut pairs well with the cocoa. It is a lot like hot cocoa, but with no fat or sugar. You can even kick it up a little by adding milk for that creamy hot cocoa flavor. I was significantly surprised with this one.
I am not a huge flavored tea love, but I love this one. The green rooibos compliments the green rooibos quite well. If you like green tea, and bananas, this is a fun tea to try.
So I am impressed with this tea. It takes an interesting spin on flavored black teas. The unique tangy notes is quite similar to ice wine. Good times.
This tea is completely disgusting. I would not have minded as much, but there is ginger in it. This is not pictured, or explained on the website. They are starting to develop a nasty habit of this type of thing. I would not recommend this tea to anyone who is expecting an unadulterated ginseng taste.

I was surprised by this tea. Lately my Yunnan experiences have been flat and boring. But this tea reminded me of what Yunnans could taste like. I guess it reminds me that Yunnan is not my favorite, but it sure ain’t bad either. So I am rambling at this point, it must be my mood today. Anyhow, I did enjoy it.
I also tried this tea today. It reminded me of pi lo chun. It is a delicate tea with a sweet note. I enjoyed it a lot, and would recommend it to anyone who loves mellow Chinese teas.
This is my first Dan Cong, so I do not have anything to compare it to.
When opening the package I was blown away by the aroma. I was worried that it might be too overwhelming in tea form, but it was very nice. I can see why so many people are drawn to this tea. I would recommend this one to any oolong lover.
The first time I tried it, I must have steeped it too long. I hated the flavor, and pushed it so far back that I forgot it was there. I brewed a cup this evening, and the taste cup was subtly sweet. I usually hate flavored green teas, but this subtle cherry flavor was a delight. I am glad that this tea was found!
The primary infusion of this tea is incredulous. The robust smokey essence left me wanting another cup. However, subsequent infusions are a huge letdown. I tried many different combination of quantity, temperature, and time; but I was left wanting. If anyone overcame this problem, feel free to drop me a note!
This tea is named perfectly. I love brewing a cup on Sunday mornings, and enjoying the Bourbon vanilla infused tea. The Chrysanthemum is a nice touch to the taste, and is supposed to have detox qualities. It brings a nice laid back tone to my Sundays.
This is the company that turned me on to creamy earl greys. They did a cupping in my town, and she served the tea iced. I was a convert right away. I have tried many since then, but there is something special about her blend. The flavour of vanilla is subtle, and the bergamont is just right.
I cannot say enough good things about this tea. The price is great, and so is the taste. I brew some of this almost daily to drink as iced tea. It is one of those unique teas that just tastes better iced than hot. (at least for me!) I recommend this one.
I started buying this tea years ago, and I used to get it in bags. I don’t know if it was just the crop at the time, but it was great. I am just finishing off my latest purchase, and the quality has dropped significantly. It is not just this order though, the quality has been declining for a while. Maybe they will boost their quality again.
This tea a finicky to say the least, but worth the hassle. I first tried this type of tea in a tea shop downtown. I loved the subtle fruity note. So I had to buy some of my own, but at a more reasonable price. It took a lot of time playing around with the temperature and time to find what worked for me. But once I did, I was sold. It is also good for multiple infusions, and grandpa style if you prefer. If it tastes rubbery, try again. It takes patience to find that sweet spot.
I was skeptical about Black Dragon Pearls, it appeared that they were just made for flash and not for taste. But I had to try them anyways. The tea pleasantly surprised me. It has a nice robust flavor, but it is not bitter. The cocoa notes are strong and pleasant. I am really beginning to enjoy teas from the Yunnan region.
