21 Tasting Notes
My first pu-erh! Made it in a gaiwan with a quarter of a cake, I’ve done 4 infusions so far and it’s still going strong.
It was just as I’ve always heard pu-erh- earthy. Though not as rich as I expected- it tasted lighter than many blacks I’ve had. Maybe I’ll try steeping it longer next time.
Regardless, deliciously unique. Not an everyday tea for me, but every once and a while, sure. I can’t wait to taste my green pu-erh from Dream About Tea!
My first gyokuro- coming from senchas and dragonwells, the umami and overall complexity of this tea kind of kicked me in the face- but not in a bad way. Very interesting, but definitely not an everyday tea for me. Also, I followed the instructions from Den’s, but I think I may have used a little too much leaf/not enough water. Anyway, I’m going to do another infusion later, I’d like to try and pull out a little more sweetness in that one.
A friend made some of this for me- no sweetner, second infusion. Pretty tasty blend- I like the spice from the cinnamon and the sweet finish from the fruits. Still, like other reviewers, I couldn’t really pick out the tastes of the individual fruits.
First time I had honeybush I didn’t like it so much, but I think I appreciate it now. The flavors are not nearly as complex as other teas, but they’re simple, smooth, and sweet. It’s worth drinking from time to time for that reason alone- a simple, unique tea.
Really good stuff- very light and floral. I always thought white teas were boring- this has depth without losing it’s lightness. Give it a try.
Buttery smooooth, especially on the first infusion. I’m used to drinking senchas, and this was refreshingly simple and less pungent than those. I’ll be coming back to this one.
Tastes pretty much like hot raspberry lemonade, in a good way. The mate is very much in the background, but when you can taste it, it’s very smooth. As for the buzz, this is my first time drinking mate and I think I prefer it to the jittery buzz coffee gives you.

Watched some videos and read some about how to properly taste tea, and I can identify even more about what makes this tea so good. Smooth and buttery and vegetative, but the most impressive part for me was the aftertaste- like 5 minutes after I finished drinking I got very plump fruity tastes. Awesome.
Tasty oolong on the darker side of the oolong spectrum- It has a lot of the things I like about black tea without being too overbearing. Second infusion wasn’t as good as the first- more bland. Think I’m going to try a shorter steep time next time I try, to try and uncover some of the complexity other steepsters are talking about…
I would’ve liked a little more spice kick to it, but it’s smooth and tasty.

I can’t speak for the immune system benefits of this tea, but it is an interesting herbal blend. Never had eucalyptus in a tea before, but it was pretty tasty- as a whole this was nothing mindblowing, but a good change of pace.
Best jasmine I’ve had- liquid springtime, with smooth flavorful oolong just underneath.
Simple, and delicious. My favorite honeybush so far- could easily be blended with a different tea to give it new life.
My first experience with a real, looseleaf oolong. Delicious! Both delicate and flavorful- I don’t have enough experience with oolongs to know how good it is in relation to others.
Got this bagged at an Einstein Bros. I’m no Earl Grey expert, but this tea didn’t wow me. It wasn’t bad, though.
Convenient, easy to brew, and tastes like springtime.
It’s ok- I’m not sure genmaicha is my thing. I don’t really like roastiness in my tea.
My first loose-leaf green… delicious!
