This is a very nice “sticky rice” tea, perfectly sweet and tasty but the aroma is most wonderful, I always have liked the scent of rice teas this one makes the whole kitchen smell good. Lance don’t like the smell he calls in “stinky rice” tea lol

This is Black Tea from Northern Thailand, I clicked on the options of black as well as oolong for this one, because I compare it to a Heavy baked Ti-Guan-Yin(but better). There are not enough good thing that I can say about this tea It is very wonderful, full of flavor and aroma. No astringency very velvety smooth nutty yummy goodness, It’s just one of those that you have to taste and smell for yourself because words on here just don’t cut it. Alls else I can say is that you just got to try it. fans of Black(red) Teas and Oolongs will mostly likely enjoy this tea very much,I know I did, but any tea lover should be able to appreciate the essence of this tea. I plan on writing more detailed cup by cup notes on this one as soon as I get more since this review is based on just my sample size portion of it,I need more so that I can toy with different steep times and temps and such,I don’t do cup by cup reviews really but this tea to me is worthy of such a review. Awesome Tea! Go get ya some http://siam-tee.de/index.php?cPath=13_6
I’m glad to have gotten some more Shan Tee,Pending on how ya steep this one you can enjoy a few different flavor profiles, short steeps is more greenish kinda floral goodness and longer steeps gives ya more of a raw puerh kinda oolongish yummyness, I do so enjoy this tea. All the teas that i’ve had from Siam Tee Shop have been very nice i’m surprised more folks on here haven’t had any to review on here, if you enjoy raw puerhs, green teas or oolongs you should for sure try this one. also Please read about Project Shan Tee here http://siamteas.com/?page_id=501 :)
I am really enjoying this one, i enjoy it best with a little sweetener while eating something salty, I ate salty pretzel chips with it and found it most delightful.
Very Good, what can i say um…tastes like ti-guan-yin and ginseng and it last forever after the coating crumbles away it tastes much better imo :)
I got this one from tattooed_tea, It wasnt what i expected the caramel overpowers it to me, I think it should be named Caramel Oolong but OMG it’s so so good, i was impressed, Thank you so much I hope you are enjoying yours teas as much as I am this one.
hhhhmmm, i’m not sure how this one is in my tealog lol
This one is great, very nice and malty with lots of cocoa/chocolatey flavors that i really wasnt expecting, I WAS expecting the cocoa notes because i’ve had this type tea from other companys but this one was by far the best, I wasnt expecting to actually taste chocolate but i almost did this in this one and that is just perfect to me, I like this one alot better than…well other companys version of it, Also of course its always lovery to watch any tea unfurl when its rolled into a ball so thats a plus too. This tea can take you away if you let it so Let It!! :)
This one is very nice and strong(steeped strong)with no bitter and slightly malty(assam type maltyness)flavor changes with more steeps ending with a very nice almost plum-like flavors, I really like this one. Very good with a little milk and a touch of sweetener.
Tastes vegetal and toasty, smell is very vegetal, it is kinda nice tho and gets more roasty tasting after a few steeps even almost nutty which was very nice but i’m afraid this one may just a tad bit too vegetal for my personal preferance i wouldnt drink it very often but its still pretty good.

I’ve been mixing Uptons Roasted Oolong with Uptons Amber Oolong, Both of them and some of my favorites, They taste great together. I’ve been drinking them Iced here lately 1 tbsp of each in a half gallon pitcher usually to cold brew sometimes I add warm water if I dont want to wait on it lol.
This is the last of my samples form Fong Mong and it is very nice has Great roasty toasty flavors with slightly sweet floral/fruityness peaches or peach blossoms and has some smokey notes to it as well all this while staying simple and not too complex, very enjoyable i must have some more of this one it reminds me of my favorite oolong so far.
I’m not sure what to say about this one, I had never had anything with saffron, I don’t know how to describe the taste or smell of this one honestly I just cant think of anything to compare it too or words to describe it, It’s a lovely tea, little bit bitter but not in a bad way at all, strange aroma but very nice.
This one gets me High :) I’ll write about how it tastes and all when I come down.
Most Excellent! Well worth the few extra bucks. Toasty, Nutty, with hints of cocoa. I love it. Its everything I was hoping it would be and more, makes me feel good :) Perfect for early mornings and well all day long honestly.
Drinking this one iced is very lovely :)
Perfect iced too, the flavors when iced are not as in your face as when warm, the “all grapefruit” turned to a nice citrus flavor and the piney juniper was a little more noticeable, very nice refreshing iced tea, I woke up to a glass this morning. Really great blend I like it alot.
This one was so not what I was expecting but it was surprisingly amazing even better than I was expecting. I am fond of juniper and the thought of juniper and grapefruit intrigued me. I was expecting a stronger juniper flavor but it was opposite and the grapefruit was powerful in this one which was perfect, the taste at first is all grapefruit with a piney juniper taste following, it reminded me of a “wilderness tea” I had once made with lemongrass and some pines, I drank it warm as usual but im looking forward to trying it iced, im glad I accidentally got 2 samples of this one. Very good flavored tea :-)
This one is good, nice and malty, I liked the one from Teavivre much better tho :-)
