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.

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

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.

Have you tried Adagio’s or Golden Moon’s Coconut Pouchong? Was wondering how this stacks up against those?

I’ve tried Adagio’s at a local restuarant and I’d say it is just slightly better. They are both quite yummy :)

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.

Jealous! I have been tempted to try one of the new New Zealand oolongs… I’m sure I’ll cave soon!
