Sweet and mellow. I have tried many Ti Guan Yins and this is probably my favorite.

It had a lot of caffeine, but not too much. It made me feel smart. I have tried this a few times, it is really nice. I got samples from them, so recommend everyone tries too.

This is a sipdown for me…

I have been so stressed out this week trying to negotiate my severance package, I’ve broken out into hives (!!!) twice and I think the two must be related unless I am developing a new food allergy. I feel like I need a vacation.

This oolong is a bit like a vacation in a cup, very soothing. I love the buttery and slightly vegetal flavor that reminds me a bit of sweet peas. And the aroma is so nice and flowery! I went for 3 steeps of this before I decided to finish it off. I do feel more relaxed somehow after drinking this.

I don’t have any unflavored green oolongs at the moment and I feel I should remedy that situation. More tea shopping may be in store for me :)

Oh man, hives are the worst. Hope you find some relief soon!

I get stress hives. On the left side of my face and neck. It’s awful. But I’m glad that the tea helped.

Cheri, what do you do with yours? Benadryl cream seems to help me, anyway

This tea is wonderful. My first ever tie guan yin so that may bias this review a bit. ;) The dry smell is sweet and floral. Once steeped the leaves unfurl and become huge and beautiful – it was very entertaining to watch the process through a clear pot. The taste is rich, very sweet, floral and smooth. For me it brings to mind the smells of summer and lilacs in bloom. One of the best teas I’ve ever had, and definitely one I’ll re-order.
