I’m usually not one for flavored teas but I love this blend. It’s delicious hot or iced. I’m almost out of it so I’ll have to make a trek to their NYC store to restock.
69 Tasting Notes
This tea was OK. Not bad just not exactly what I was looking for. Dan Cong is my favorite kind of tea and I don’t see the need to scent it with osmanthus. My infusions were actually 40 sec but I couldn’t get the slide bar on the right number.
Nutty with a bit of coconut. This tea is decent but I think I’d like some more spice. It is chai after all :P
Very delicate. Sweet and vegetal. Really good quality stuff :)
I picked this up a while ago at the grand opening of their Rockefeller Center store. Floral and woodsy with just a bit of that muskatel flavor.
I’m burning through some of my old tea stock. It’s still surprisingly good. Sweet, nutty and smokey. A perfect wakeup tea for a morning like this.
Yummy! This is a really good oolong with just a hint of coconut. It almost reminds me of coconut oil. Not that super sweet candy-like flavor we are used to but a nice lingering sweetness.
This is one of the better chocolate teas that I’ve tried. The smell of the dry leaves is completely spot on. Mint is definitely the predominant flavor in the tea itself though.
This tea had a really rich, multilayered flavor. It was sweet but towards the third infusion there was a nice smokiness to it.
This tea is brisk but not super astringent so it’s just my speed. I’m going to have to try this one iced as well. The leaves really are beautiful, they’re elegantly long and twisted.
This in an interesting take on an earl grey. A bit too much bermot for my taste though. I actually felt like I had oil coating my mouth and throat.
Simply delicous :) The passionfruit aroma was very strong but the taste was a mild bit of citrus paired with a very nice creamy oolong.
Finished the last of my sample of this. I really enjoyed the sweetness added by the neem leaves.
Just what I need to recover from a camping trip with the family. This is one of the most highly scented jasmine’s i’ve had. Anyone know of a good recipe using jasmine green tea?
The neem gives this strong black tea a subtle sweetness. The flavor is hard to pinpoint but it reminds me of chocolate. From a distance it smells slightly fruity or cake-like. It has a cooling aftertaste too. I’m glad I went with a short infusion time, it seems like other people had some trouble with bitterness.
Uncharacteristically in the mood for a mellow tea today. This one was sweet, vegetal and roasty. Everything a dragonwell should be.
I picked a tin of this up at the NY Coffee and Tea Festival. It has become my go-to tea for a morning pick me up. It’s sweet and just astringent enough. I don’t even need to add milk or sugar.
Wow…just wow. This is probably the best oolong I have ever had, and that says a lot because I’ve had A LOT of oolong. Short steeps in a gaiwan are best. I think I may need to treat myself to this one.
Mint + Oolong = Happy Nicole
Creamy and refreshing, I think I’m in love :)
Took me a couple of steeps to get this one right. It wasn’t outstanding but still tasted pretty good. I’m not such of a strawberry person anyway.
Brewed this in a gaiwan. It’s amazing how much it really does smell and taste like sticky rice. The first steeping was a bit too astringent but all of the other ones (I think I must have done around 6 or so) were very nice.
I really like this one. Just a hint of lavender. The second infusion had the best balance of flavors. A little too sweet after drinking six cups of it :p
Jasmine Dream is a staple for me. It has a nice balance between the vegetal green and the jasmine. A lot of blends are overly sweet or floral but I like this one a lot.
Definitely needed a light tea like this on such a hot day. It’s sweet and refreshing but not overwhelming. I always keep a tin of this on the tea shelf.
