Mmm, this tea is so sweet and caramel tasting with those delicious coconut notes. A great treat!

Soooo tasty. Too bad it’s soooo pricey. :)


I know hey, especially since there is hardly any white tea in there at all!

I ordered this a long time ago and it got pushed to the back of my tea cupboard. Well, here we go, now I’m trying it!
I steeped it for 10 minutes hoping to bring out some spectacular strawberry flavour.
The strawberry flavour isn’t near as strong as I thought it would be. I am getting creamy notes.
This tea is much better iced than hot, and I am thinking that a cold brew might bring out the strawberry flavour a bit more, I will try that next time.

Boiling 8 min or more

I needed a gong-fu tea tasting today, so I tried it with this tea. I followed Teavivre’s parameters:7 steeps: rinse,25s,35s,45s,55s,65s,75s,85s.

I found this green oolong to be buttery, slightly vegetal but not overpowering. I found it fruity and slightly sweet, just as the description states.

Overall, I am glad that I ordered a sample of this tea and ejoyed it.

I love coconut, so this tea is right up my alley. It is creamy, smooth, and coconutty with that oolong base coming through as buttery.
It also smells delicious!

It’s a winner!

I made this iced today and made a tea smoothie. How refreshing! The peach notes are definitely shining through here today.
Smoothie: iced tea, banana, frozen mango, low fat vanilla yogurt

I have had this sample for a long time and just getting around to it now!
I used the whole sample package for my cup. This tea smells amazingly sweet and like a fresh meadow with flowers and honeybees.
The taste is very smooth, sweet, mostly floral with just a tinge of vegetal notes.
Resteep: boiling, 3min. The sweetness has really decreased and more of the TGY vegetal notes are coming through. This is wonderful and delicious.

I am really enjoying this tea. I love how oolongs taste so creamy and smooth, but aren’t “heavy” if ya know what I mean. Like a special treat.

I loved the version of this without honey. With honey sounds amazing!


Wow, this is an interesting tea. Will have to try sometime. Tea leaves packaged in actual honey in individual servings might make taking it to work easier.


Yes, the honey definitely adds a nice touch!
The individual sample packages make this tea very convenient!

I finished this one off with a cold brew. This is very refreshing, I didn’t add any sweetener and I didn’t find that it needed it. The slight tartness is what makes it so refreshing I think.
I might have to stock up on this for the summer!


This is one of my favorites!

I LOVE this tea! It is so sweet and smooth with that silky mouthfeel. And it so gorgeous to watch those little pearls unfurl. Delicious!
I still have to compare these to the superfine downy pearls which I have not even tried yet. I just have SO many teas that are getting old that I need to sipdown.

I haven’t had this one in a really long time. It’s getting old so I guess I should hurry up and finish the bag.
Tonight, I am mostly getting nutty and coconut notes. More nutty than usual I would say. I like it!

I am having my last cuppa of this gem of a tea. Smooth chocolate, coconut dessert in a cup. A great way to end the day.

I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed 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. I am not the biggest fan of green tea.

My favourite flavours are nutty, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are floral (jasmine being the exception) and banana.

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.
