From Teaopia

This very special Chinese Green Tea, also known as “Ding Gu Da Fang,” is the result of a pure serendipity that can only occur in the event of a rare confluence of climate and geography. Orchid Tea is a mountain-grown leaf that results when the orchid plantations that are located close to the tea bushes are early to flower, and the tea is late to mature for plucking. Normally these events occur at distinctly different time, but when the climate is just right, and the cool mountain breezes are just so, the fragrance of the opening orchids is carried on the wind to the tea bushes. The absorbent and sensitive young tea leaf is gently permeated with sweet floral notes of orchid. The result is rare, spectacular and highly prized.

Heads up guys, I got some lawyers on my tail about reviewing Teavana teas on here (apparently it looks like statements endorsed by the company if you have lawyer goggles on), so I will not be doing that for the time being. Sorry, you all will have to taste them yourselves!

Don’t be surprised if some of my reviews vanish, or for this blog to vanish entirely…but I will be contacting people personally if that’s the case. I’m not completely sure what’s going to happen yet, or what I may have to take down, but I will not be touching Teavana teas for the near future. I have a HUGE backlog of samples from other tea companies, so I may get to that some evenings instead. Otherwise, since Teavana teas are mostly what I’m drinking now (and I am not around as much to comment on other people’s tasting notes), I may appear to disappear. I’m not actually dead, never fear.

P.S. To whoever is watching me so closely, could you do me a favour and pass on to the appropriate department that we need more Earl Grey/Earl Grey Creme on a continual basis? MUCH APPRECIATED, KISSES.

That’s kind of awful.

Mercuryhime

Wow. That sucks. And I just started reading your entertaining logs. :(

Ninavampi

Sorry about that… I loved reading your notes!

Claire

That is terrible. I will miss your reviews!

Alphakitty

I feel like this happened to someone else on here too, they’re so strict about social media. A few of your reviews have made me REALLY want to try the new flavors, seems like good publicity to me. :(

Helena

Damn legal mumbo jumbo! Oh well review some other teas and stay with us! (Don’t go into the light….)

Daniel Scott

@Alphakitty – I feel like no reasonable person could read my reviews and think they were coming from the company. But I am not a lawyer, so I don’t know what would hold up in court.

@Helena – Don’t worry, I still have something like 100 other teas in my stash, LOL.

cteresa

That is awful!

CHAroma

Wow. What idiotic lawyers. It’s called freedom of speech!! Do whatever you want! They can’t touch you!

I recently tried this while visiting a Teaopia store. It was absolutely beautiful to drink. And, because I got distracted by the Matcha and a bunch of other tea I had come to purchase, I forgot about this one (I know, I know, if it was that great, how could I have forgotten about it?) and I totally left the store without purchasing any of this tea. I’m hoping to remedy this before it sells out entirely.
