I mixed my last cup of this with some “strawberry cream” from zen tea and it was delicious.

I really enjoyed this delicious, malty, cocoa, bready tea.
I got 4 excellent cups of this from just 1 tsp of leaf steeping western style @ 3,3.5,3.5,4 minutes
I am not sure what the difference is between the regular laoshan black but I thoroughly enjoyed this and would order it again

Thanks to Teavivre for providing this sample!
I used the whole sample for this brew.
This tea was delicious and so aromatic. The leaves are long and twisted.
Notes of honey and stone fruit were the most prominent for me. It is warming and leaves a sweet, lingering taste. Delicious
This will be on the order list next time I place one!

Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for these samples
I didn’t realize that I had sampled this tea already!
I hope I have this in the correct listing
This was a smooth, fresh green oolong. It is buttery and vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. The resteep seems to be creamier and even more delicious

Thank you for the samples Angel at Teavivre!
With the name “charcoal baked” I was expecting something really smokey and “heavy”. This roasted oolong was smoother and sweeter than I was expecting. It isn’t as roasted tasting as I was expecting either. These are all good things because I found this tea to be very enjoyable. The first steep had mineral notes which decreased a little in the resteep.

The brewing parameters suggest 6 minutes which I thought was a little long but I went with it anyway since they have never steered me wrong yet! I think the mineral notes might not be as strong if brewed a little shorter though, or maybe a rinse.

This was an incredibly smooth cuppa. It was fairly green with lots of vegetal and buttery notes. It is very floral but not cloying or soapy in any way.
It is delicious of course.
The resteeps are possibly even more enjoyable than the first cuppa

I’m so impressed about its floral fragrance in each steep.

This was an ok tea but there are a lot better earl grey teas out there. I found it too pricey for low to mid range quality loose leaf tea

Yep, I was into steeped tea for a while-not anymore. Just as a comparison, 50g of rooibos tea blends from iHOT (local tea shop)= $5.75, DAVIDs TEA: around $7, Steeped tea: around $8.50. They are really overpriced.

Ya and it’s not like the tea is exceptional quality or anything

Ewww…i tried this as a cold brew since I have been doing all my herbals that way lately. Since creme caramel rooibos turned out well as a cold brew, I though his would be ok too. I was wrong, so very wrong. It is WAY too sweet and just…yuck.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
