A lovely gentle tea from Yunnan, almost all buds. Doesn;t have the characteristic nose or spice of the usual Yunnan, but it is a lovely tea. Totally different with some milk in it. Sweeter, smoother, heavier, two teas in one!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 15 sec

Smelled like baked custard, with a lilac overtone. Tasted a bit custardy and floral, then slid into baked veggie, ending with an almost asparagus taste. Second steep not much

drank Yuzu Oolong by Naivetea

Oh yum. This is such a good tea. Infused with pomolo peel, very heavy citrus scent, but goes through a floral, vanilla phase and ends up sweet. My husband, a very non-Oolonger really liked it

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 45 sec

Silky Sencha, very good blending of the lemon and raspberry, no chemical whiff – an issue with me. Didn’t expect to like it as well as I did.

drank Meadow Nocturne by Liber Teas

Chamomile based with lots of pretty flower petals. Relaxing tisane tasting of apple and florals. Very pleasant and relaxing. Nice blend with the florals as a high note.

Alovely tea that smells like sandalwood, tastes like honey and flowers, without being sweet, [hooray] or flowery and has a nice lingering taste. A definite keeper

drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas
197 tasting notes

A very nice tea. Not great, but very good. i got a smell of the best tobacco, with some dry cornsilk and bracken. Very smooth rich mouthfeel, with a bit of cocoa, but not much of the spice and pepper I usually associate with Yunnans. A more mellow one than usual. When it cools, the cocoa really comes out. Delicious!
