This one continues to blow me away. I’m in love and I haven’t liked silk oolongs in the past. It is like buttercream frosting. Amazing.

I love this tea. I don’t get a strong coconut flavor, but it’s such a creamy, well-balanced chai. I do a mix of half water and half milk – bring to a boil and then simmer steep for 4 minutes. Strained and sweetened with about 1 tsp of maple syrup. It has a nice spice blend and is warm and comforting. Love it.

This is a pretty basic English Breakfast. Not much sparkle, but also not much astringency. It was fine, but just not that memorable.

Gave this tea a try today. Really nice Yunnan Gold. I definitely preferred it to the Yunnan Jig. I remember that early on I loved Adagio’s Yunnan Gold but my last order or two was a bit disappointing. This Yunnan Golden Curls reminds me of the OLD Yunnan Gold. I must say, though, that I don’t think I’d pay $29 for 3 ounces.

A really unique chai blend. The cloves and cinnamon came through nicely but the vanilla was a special surprise. Creamy.

drank Coco Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea

Rich and bold with aggressive ginger flavor and peppery aftertaste. Cocoa emerges slowly. Great.

Light, green oolong. Floral, but delicately so. Enjoyable brew.

Really liked this. More assertive than I’d expected. Reminded me of some of the more fruity Ceylons or the grape-y 1st flush Darjeelings.

Nice light oolong. On the green end of the oolong spectrum. Floral and nice drinking.
