I think I’m in love. I’m a milk oolong addict and this blend was perfect. It was creamy and sweet with a really nice vegetal aftertaste. The coconut was present but not overpowering. The coconut flavor starts to fade after the first infusion but the tea leaves themselves can definitely keep going for more.

Fall is here and I have been craving smores like crazy. This tea definitely hit the spot. It was super sweet and definitely brought my favorite fireside treat mind.

This tea was incredibly aromatic and floral. It was smooth and buttery with no noticeable astringency. There were notes of orchid, lavender and vanilla with a fresh greenness in the background.

This tea was wonderfully delicate. The jasmine scenting was there but I loved that the tea itself was still able to shine through. The leaves were absolutely beautiful to watch as they unfurled. I made this iced as well and it was fantastic.

Truly lovely. Love the charcoal roasted aspect while still retaining many of the qualities of a green Tie Guan Yin.

I might like earl grey more if it tasted like this. Refreshing citrus flavor with a creamy vanilla element.

This was…interesting? I’m not a fan of pickled anything but this was actually not half bad. It was surprisingly mellow with a mild citrus tang at the end of each sip. The smell of the wet leaves was a bit of a turn off though.

Can you say yum? The flavoring wasn’t overdone but it definitely brought black forest cake to mind. This tea was sweet and chocolaty with just a hint of cherry tartness.
