I’m afraid that I may have prepared this horribly wrong. My sample was the tiniest sample I’ve ever seen. I don’t have a scale, so try to picture the length and width of 4 toothpicks laying together. That is how much tea my sample contained. I’m really disappointed; this only made half a mug of tea, but I’m still afraid that this is going to be really diluted.

Ooh, I taste the orange blossoms. Most people here had a little difficulty tasting them, but for me, that’s the first thing that hits me right away. This is a nice, light woody and nutty oolong. The orange blossoms give it dimension and the perfect hint of sweetness. I’m still afraid that I’m not getting the full experience because of how tiny my sample was, but this doesn’t taste bad. I’m assuming that a more concentrated cup would only be better.

I found that all of the GM samples were too small to make a decent sized mug. ;{

An infant couldn’t have reached their tiny fingers into a bag and pulled out less tea than I received in this sample. Bummer.

Erin – Your comment made me crack up at my desk. Tiny samples that do not even make one cup are not cool at all. Bummer indeed.

That’s really strange! I was puzzled by how large my sample of this tea was, so clearly GM doesn’t have a consistent measure for their sample packs :(

I, too, had a very small sample!

Bio

I have recently been forcibly transplanted from Princeton, New Jersey to Burleson, Texas. I’ve been recovering from culture shock ever since. When I’m not dodging scorpions and pickup trucks, I’m a college student, drummer, lover of music and animals, Harry Potter freak, and a vegetarian. I just got a job at a bookstore, which is the perfect place for somebody like me.
