Thanks Sil for letting me try this. I may have messed it up though – I didn’t realize it was a big jumble of different teas instead of a black blend, and so I went for 4 minutes at boiling. WHOOPS.

I did taste strawberry and some nice black notes, but it was also a little bitter too. Very interesting though! I won’t rate it, but I think I’d be interested in trying it again at a later date.


heh. yeah those blends are sneaky

Another one from Sil! And it’s another multiple base tea, although this one is black/green/oolong. Interesting… The leaves are quite large, and I can see all three kinds. The oolong in here is definitely an oxidized and unrolled variety, though I don’t smell any roastiness to speak of. Dry scent is vaguely caramel-y.

I can definitely smell a touch of roast in the steeped tea, as well as the oolong itself and strawberry and caramel flavors. Hm, this kind of just tastes like a generic roasted oolong with not a lot of distinguishing characteristics. I’m not picking up on much flavoring either, maybe a tiny hint of caramel. Sad panda.

Part of a generous sampler I received from Sil!

Okay – any time I see blends and realize they are a mixture of tea types I get so nervous. I mean, black and oolong and green? What am I supposed to do about temperature? And strawberry, caramel, and jasmine? What a combination – I was curious to see what the final result would be.

I ended up going with an oolong temp (195) and black steep time (4 minutes) and came up with a light liquor that looks a lot like dan cong oolongs do, so kind of light amber. The scent is all strawberry and caramel/vanilla. I can never bring myself to add anything to oolong or green teas, so this is going to be a plain tasting.

And, surprisingly, it reminds me of the strawberry shortcake blend from DAVIDsTEA. Weird, especially because that’s a black tea I always had with milk and sugar, and this tea manages to have a strawberry and cream quality without any additions.

Yes, I quite like this, though I do think its more of an afternoon than a breakfast tea. But it’s a cold morning here so any warm beverage is appreciated…and this, I’m sure won’t be the last tasting note for me today. :)

Glad you enjoyed it….I wasn’t to sure about it but figured it was the chicago blend so I had to get it!


Interesting. I also shy away from blended tea types (well, when green is involved, primarily). Glad it worked!

This was another tea from yesterday – you’ll have to wait for a proper review, but this has jasmine in it…and i still bought it. and it taste like NOT JASMINE, so that makes me happy…instead it’s more strawberry caramel vanilla, hello! :) so nyah!

Final Count: 87
