Aroma: Chocolate, Orange
Liquor Color: Golden amber
Liquor Flavor: Dark chocolate, crisp orange
Notes: This reminds of of those chocolate oranges. From the smell, to the taste. I don’t seem to get any type of marshmallow flavor, which made me a little sad. I’ll have to try again sometime, but it was still delicious anyway.

Aroma: Musty, wet soil
Liquor Color: Deep rusty red
Liquor Flavor: Smooth, deep in flavor, earthy but sweet
Notes: Once again, this was part of a sample pack, although this was a little too rich for me, it was a very smooth solid tea. Earthiness balanced with a honey like sweetness.

Aroma: Crisp leaves, light earth
Liquor Color: Deep rusty red
Liquor Flavor: Very smooth, rich, not drying, sweet & creamy
Notes: I got this as part of a sampler pack for ripe pu-erhs and although this still isn’t my style, I do appreciate the different notes and how smooth it was. It didn’t leave me wanting some water from the dryness, and it was very smooth. It reminded me of a crisp fall morning.

drank Lemon Chiffon by Red Rose
118 tasting notes

Aroma: Cream, lemon, cake
Liquor Color: Amber
Liquor Flavor: Chemically-lemon cream flavor
Notes: Again I picked up a free sample of this at the New York State Fair, but this one was my least favorite. I couldn’t finish drinking it. Very creamy artificial lemon taste. I love lemon and all but this wasn’t too great

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Cinnamon Streusel by Red Rose
118 tasting notes

Aroma: Sweet Cinnamon
Liquor Color: Amber
Liquor Flavor: Cinnamon, light sweetness, slight astringency
Notes: I was at the New York State fair and when I saw free samples of tea I just couldn’t resist. I don’t usually drink bags, besides some traditional medicinals when I’m sick. Anyway, I have to say, this tasted exactly like it was described. Not a bad tea bag at all. The only complaint I had was this was kind of drying. I felt like I needed a cup of water after I drank this.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
118 tasting notes

Aroma: Damp earth
Liquor Color: Deep red
Liquor Flavor: Dark, rich, woody, bitter coca
Notes: This one was dark, and super rich. A little too much so for me but I can see why people like it. I’ll give it a whirl again with less leaf and take it from there.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 45 sec

Aroma: Woody, deep, sweet, wet leaves, chocolate
Liquor Color: Deep rusty red
Liquor Flavor: Woody, smooth, light with next infusion the chocolate notes came out
Notes: From a person who doesn’t seem to like puerhs still, this sample changed my mind. It was so smooth, but light and the complexity of the flavors made me keep thinking what I’ll taste in the coming infusion. I could see myself drinking this.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 45 sec 7 g 4 OZ / 118 ML

Bio

My love of tea began with a quest to find the best bubble tea. After some research I found an Asian inspired tea shop that happened to serve amazing bubble tea, as well as loose tea. I was really new to loose tea but my friend ordered jasmine pearl tea. Once I took a sip, I was hooked! Tea soon became my new passion.
