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!

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?

You might try to fix rice with it. I couldn’t find the recipe under their site but I’ve had Tea Sorbet at Anna Marie’s. It was fantastic and so refreshing. I’ll ask them about it next visit. Recipe Chimp had plenty of ideas that I can’t wait to try:

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.

Morning pick me up that’s preprogramed? :)
