This is such a pleasant tea. Not perfumey, more of an herbal, almost minty. A good tea base with just enough of it’s flavors and oils. A good balance.

Not my favorite gunpowder, my “Scoop up what looks good in the Asian Market” Camel brand is still my favorite, but I like it. I like the tiny whiff of smoke and the slight bitterness and it doesn’t taste fishy or seaweedy. There’s also the barest hint of asparagus in the taste.

This is this year’s Dao Ming and it is superb. Very dark red wine cask smell and taste, with oakiness, and a bit of acerbic twist. A tiny whiff of smoke in the smell, but none in the taste. Earthy but not Pu-erh like. More a groundedness. A touch of cream rounds out the edges from being brewed about 1/2 minute too long. Really excellent stuff.

drank White Ginger by Golden Moon Tea

Smells nice and there is a gentle ginger taste with an underlying sweet tea. I am not a white tea fan, I don’t have the palate for it. Even so, it was good in a very understated way.

Not a whole lot of Orangebut this was a comforting warming drink that was raosty and toasty, definately nutty and it goes well with cream and sugar.

Wow! Dry it smells of the best winey tobacco, but gently, being sweet and fresh. It has lots of nuances and is just plain really good stuff. Brew it the full six minutes. You’ll be glad you did.

I cn’t decide if I like this or not. It is not a particularly floral OB, which I really like.It is a beautiful coloor, like some dandelion jelly I got at the farmer’s market. To me it is both nutty and vegetal. The mouth feel is very full and somewhat astringent, drying to my mouth. A good counterpoint to sweets. The second brew smelled like the steam of ironed clothes and was greener tasting and I liked it better. Definately one to explore

The Puritea’s OB is floral and not vegetative….and honey tasting.

This came in a nice package of 6 teabags, with six clover honey spoons. It had not much taste nor much smell, even with the honey spoon stirred well in.
