73 Tasting Notes
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.
This blend was super simple but for a cinnamon junkie like me, it was heaven in a teacup. It wasn’t overdone but still had tons of spicy flavor. There was a really nice “baked” quality that definitely brought cinnamon rolls to mind.
I think I’m going to try upping my steep time a bit but I found this blend a little bland. I was expecting strong cherry flavor when it’s really more of an aftertaste.
Sweet, mocha, creamy, chocolaty yummy-ness :)
This is one of the most complex white teas I have ever had. It was creamy, spicy and fruity with just a hint of grassiness. I was expecting a completely different experience, it tasted nothing like darjeeling and nothing like white tea.

I’m sad to see that I’m almost out of this tea. It was what started me on my oolong obsession. I used to get a cup every morning from the now closed Amai tea shop when I worked in Manhattan.
This stuff is amazing. So incredibly sweet and toasty tasting. I’m normally not a huge fan of gunpowder greens but this one is the best I’ve ever had.
I rarely find a black tea that works so well for gong fu style brewing. This tea is delicious. Mild but lots of flavor. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in an unflavored tea. There were hints of plum, raisins and cinnamon. Definitely a must try!
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.
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.
